If I hadn't of experienced hemorrhoids 8 years ago, I would of said toothache, and if I hadn't of experienced labor pain 7 months ago, I wouldn't of said toothache, but since I did experience labor pain, then my answer is dead on(labor pain.) Would you tell me your worst pain.

The pain from recovering from a c-section is absolutly f'n HORRID! One of many reasons why that was my last baby. Hats off to those who opt for c-sections or even repeat c-sections..... I didn't want to do it the first time and I don't ever ever ever want to do that again. Plus, it resulted in some PPD.

Probably the pain from kidney stones which suppossed to be similiar to labor pains, sometimes the pain was dull, sometimes not at all, and at other times it was agonizing.

Eep. Well, if labor pains are similar to pain from kidney stones, that's yet another reason for me to never give birth.

The worst pain I have ever felt is when I had a kidney stone attack. The pain was so bad I thought I would die before I made it to the emergency room and was actually seen. The X-Ray showed I had about 5 or 6 stones but only one of them was causing the pain. The ER doctor gave me a shot to ease the pain and then sent me home to wait for the stone to pass on its own. The pain just intensified and I got sicker and sicker by the hour. So another trip to the emergency room, a urologist, and emergency surgery to remove the stone followed because the stone was too large to pass through and was lodged. After the surgery, I got a major infection from the stint and ended up in the hospital with a fever around 104 to 105 for a week. I remember the preacher coming in my hospital room and asking me if he could pray with me and I just cried because I really was so sick I thought I would never make it out of the hospital. Kidney stones is one thing I do not wish upon anyone. I delivered my son naturally with no epidural or anything and I swear the labor was nothing compared to the kidney stone ordeal. It was the absolute worst!

The worst pain I ever felt was when I had a kidney stone. I was literally doubled over in pain. And, it was worse when I didn't know why I was hurting. I imagined all sorts of terrible things until we got to the hospital and figured out what it was. And, I've heard it said that having a kidney stone is one of the worst pains you can have. I don't have a lot to compare it with, fortunately, but I wouldn't be surprised if that's true.

wow...I've been through alot sooo...Labor for me wasn't all too bad...The first birth I had an emerancy c-section because her heart was failing due to lack of space and oxygen...I'm only 5'1 and 98 lbs and she was 8lbs 7 ozs...lol and then my second child was 7 lbs but she was a scheduled c-section ...so the first c-section hurt more than the second cause I knew what I had to do to feel better...god just as long as you don't sneeze, cough, or laugh...you're good. lol. But when I was 14 years old I had several leg operations because I have a muscle disease called Charcotmarietooth...there is no cure for it...all doctors can do is experiment and try to make you more comfortable in life and as the disease progresses....I had both ankle cut off...turned...and bolted back together, both femur bones cut in half...turned and plated back together, and had the muscles in my feet seperated and moved around to help my feet move better......talk about poppin pills....lol. Take a pill and I was out, nighty night....lol.... Was it worth it....honestly I'm not sure...I wonder if I could of just did Physical Therapy the rest of my life and be better off then to have been experimented on.... I've been in several car wrecks...I've flipped them, rolled them, rear-ended someone, have been rear-ended, and have been side swiped...soooo seven years no accidents or tickets yeay for me! Its nice to go from paying 275 dollars for liability to 70 dollars for full coverage...lol BIG DIFFERENCE..... I think thats all the major things that have happened to me....the worst pain for me...... Oh yeah does my ex-boyfriend ripping me off 23,000 dollars count as pain? lol...if so then that would beat everything

Definitely menstrual pain. :( I don't have kids, so I don't know about the pain of giving birth. I'm sure it's probably worse. But, then again, menstrual pain is every month! :(
