After watching Taboo on National Geographic, It occurred to me how much pain these people go through. You see people hanging from fish hooks, people getting run over (as in stunts), people getting half eaten from sharks. What is your opinion?

I've heard that passing a kidney stone would qualify. Thankfully, I've never personally verified that.


As for pain thresholds, it seems to be that it would depend upon the circumstances and the type of pain involved (i.e. physical or emotional).

Passing a kidney stone would be my guess.

However, with labor you only get to hear the horror/war stories; no-one talks about the babies that just "pop" out.
With her first child, my cousin was in labor for maybe three hours, and was up walking around an hour after the child was born. Immediately after the birth her husband said "That's it? My God woman, have a little pride about yourself...at least scream and holler and pretend it's killing you!".

Well for me, I have passed quite a few kidney stones in my time. I still have them too. I can remember 3 occasions I had to go to the ER, to get morphine and flomax. Once I was prepped for surgery when at the last minute, the stones came thru naturally. But let me tell ya, guys...it's a man's version of giving birth. The pain is incredible! The pain made me irrational & angry, just like a woman in labor. Try pissing out a lima bean thru your wiener, because that's what it felt like coming down my dick! Some of my stones were big as buck shots. My advice to prevents stones...drink plenty of water and cut back on food & drinks containing lots of calcium, mostly dairy products. Hope none of you will go thru this agony.
Regards.

For me it was 2 things: I had to get my ingrown removed and the needle hurt like hell. The 2nd is not being able to breathe a sinus surgery. They put packing's up my nose and every time I went to sneeze, it hurt. I was crying for a hour hoping they would magically disappear. My advice: never get sinus surgery unless you have too. Till then im clear.

Diverticulitis

When it acts up, makes me double over, and I curl up in the fetal position to help ease the pain.

Passing a kidney stone can hurt as hell (so I've heard) but it doesn't have to. I didn't feel much; I was just shocked how bloody it was.
To me a severe migraine episode is much worse.

It's like trying to pee out a marble: hard, hurts and you need a lot of sedatives and pain relievers to take care of it (or so my dad says).

The worst pain (physical) I have ever experienced, would have to have been when I rode a rickety wagon down a steep hill here in Calgary. (Any Calgarians familiar with Prairie Winds Park and that gigantic hill?)

Ultimately, I didn't break anything but my glasses and my trust in wagons for about 3 years. I can specifically remember that I hit a bump, went flying out of said wagon and landed back first at the base of the hill. About 4 of my friends crowded around me and asked me if I was okay. I just got up, brushed off the dust from my jacket and asked "Where's the coffee?" However, I must have hit a rock with my back, as I had an orange-sized bruise on my back for about a week, and it stung like heck for a good while, even after the bruise disappeared.

Like being stabbed in the back. Nothing you can do makes the pain go away. The best you can hope for is to pop a couple of pills (I was prescribed Percacet)...and hopefully 30 minutes later it finally fades. Or in most cases the pain dulls to an ache that you can live with. Passing a stone is supposedly equivalent to child birth for the male. I passed one stone, which...well...afterwards I was crying on the floor thanking god for seeing the end of that ordeal. I had surgery to remove the others that were too big to come out. That's what happens when you don't drink enough water and you eat like shit, folks. Anyway, the pain comes and goes, and hits without warning. Either way, it's no walk in the park.

I have a friend who had the onset of a kidney-stone attack while we were at LAX airport. One minute he was standing next to me talking. The next minute he had dropped to the ground and was screaming.

The pain is not where you'd expect it to be. The worst pain of kidney stones is in the lower back, just above waist-level. That is when the stone tries to exit the kidney and gets caught in the ureter (different from the urethra).

According to my friend, there is nothing worse.

Been there.....was HELL!! Couldn't even roll over in bed without pain. I thought I was going to die until the puss exploded through my skin relieveing the pressure and the pain after 24 hours of HELL!! Of note....the drainage explosion occurred during my favorite Seinfeld episode, the one where Elaine is in coach and Jerry is in first class. hehe
