What is the worst pain you've ever experienced?

Whether it be physical, emotional, what is the worst pain you've felt? For me, emotionally, it would have to be losing a close loved one, physically, having a baby, was the worst pain I ever felt, next to that, having a toothache and not being able to do a stinkin' thing about it. How about you?...

i delivered a baby too.. it hurt but i dont know if it hurt that much... i didnt have a epidural or pethadene and i had natural.. i think my wisdom tooth was worse because there was nothing I could do to stop the pain. As much as the pain hurt giving birth i knew it would be over and I would have a beautiful baby afterwards

I, too believe that the worst pain anyone could ever experience is losing a dear loved one. For me, I had lost my kid brother first, then unknowingly I was 3 weeks pregnant, I traveled overseas just to attend and made my last glimpse of my kid brother in his coffin. I spent 10 busy days with my family and had to go back to my husband overseas. So on the way, I'm already bleeding because of exhaustion maybe. And 2 days after my arrival I went to see an OB-Gyne and she just told me that I got a miscarriage. What a dreadful time for me that is. But thank God I'm already past over it. About the toothache, yeah I used to experienced exquisite pain for it. And it's very tormenting and frustrating. It really affected my activities before. Thank God, that I rarely feel toothache again for decades now. I really fear having the same experiences again.

The worst pain that I have ever experienced was to be in full labour for 22 hours, also having a tooth ache where I had broken this tooth travelling from the country to back to the city in a train and I could do nothing about this but to pull the stupid tooth out myself.

Worse pain of all was having a baby, but that went away when I first laid eyes on him. The second worst pain was a herniated lower back disc - I tried all sorts of pain killers and not one worked effectively; and thirdly was when i ruptured my archilles tendon playing sports. I was in a cast for six weeks and then it took a while thereafter to get back on my feet again.

Emotional - my husband and I had an arguement resulting in me moving back with my mum (while bub was 8 mnths old) and then same weeks loosing my horse to a broken leg... I still miss my horse and always think maybe i could of done something to change it. Physical - um.. probably while pregnant having my wisdom tooth come thru.. Absolutley nothing I could do to help the pain

emotional was the loss of my husband back in 1991 and physical pain was having a bleeding artery sewn up with out anesthia in order to save me from dying after I had had a hysterectomy and torn a stitch out.

The wost pain I had was years ago when I was going true an extremely bad depression. I'm not really sure what the worst physical pain I had was but it may of been when I cut the bottom of my foot a couple years ago because I accidentally stepped on the axial of our old laundry cart while barefoot. Had to go to urgent care center because docs office wasn't open at the time. Had to get stitches & miss two weeks of College.
