    Back is killing me! After tea I'm going heat a wheat bag up and use that!

    So pain....... Sucks doesn't it

    What's the last pain you had?

    What's the worst pain you've ever had?

    Is there a pain you can cope with or one you just can't cope with?

    Last pain for me, my back

    Worst pain, when I had a painful tooth on the bottom left, jaw was killing too

    What's the last pain you had?

    In pain now, In every joint, my knees, hips and feet are the worst but everything from my Jaw to my thumb is hurting. My hip keeps dislocating and has popped out of place quite a few times today as has my left kneecap.

    What's the worst pain you've ever had?

    can't pin point a certain really bad pain. it kind of sucked when my appendix burst but it hurt worst when my cousin ripped out my drain sucking out the burst matter after the operation but I know I've had worse pain than that just can't pin point just one but those are the most memorable.

    Is there a pain you can cope with or one you just can't cope with?

    I can cope with broken bones and quick sharp pains and pains I'm expecting. but can't stand pain that leaves me feeling sick to my stomach.

    hope you feel better soon x

    Hi Tinks, Sorry you struggling with your pain today.

    I am suffering a bit today ( I`m a bit drugged up actually so please excuse grammar/spelling worse than usual!)

    Pain is a difficult thing to quantify really. I have had broken bones in the past and not really flinched, yet fell over and grazed my hands and cried like a baby :eek:

    If I had to chose the worse pain I felt I would go for childbirth, but that is because it went on for so bloody loooooong!

    I think toothache is a pain that is really hard to forget about, toothache makes me really miserable.

    Hope the wheat thingy works, I like those specially the lavender scented ones.

    Last pain for me was 6 weeks ago when I gave birth to my 3rd child.

    Most painful pain was probably ear infection. I can handle child birth as you get a lovely prize at the end.

    My back. D persuaded me to go and see his chiropractor. That man is a god :yesnod: I could hardly walk, and in two sessions I was as good as new :thumbup:

    He did tell me though, that heat wouldnt help, I needed to use ice on it - I hate being cold so was not happy :nonod:

    I would say a tooth abcess. I had it when I was 8 months pregnant so couldnt take painkillers, and my whole face, head and neck were just throbbing. At least when I had Jake, I had an epidural :D

    Toothache and earache I find hardest to deal with, nothing seems to help, and it kind of spreads, so its not just the tooth or ear that actually hurt.

    I get migraines so can relate to pain. Probably the worst pain I've had was a urinary tract infection. Yowser. :(

    Last winter whilst splitting wood the axe bounced and hit me in the eye socket. Good gawd that hurt. What's worse I looked absolutely horrendous for about a month and hated going out in public. There was a huge lump the size of a golfball and the blood pooled into my cheek. The stares I got. Once I dropped a 20 pound frozen turkey on my toe. :mad: I think I broke my middle toe but there's nothing they can do for it. Oh, and then there was the time I was chopping onions and sliced the tip of my little finger completely off. Come to think of it that was probably the most painful thing ever.

    What can I say, I'm a KLUTZ! :mad::

    Those were all in the last few years. Would you like me to go back to childhood? :biggrin:

    Last pain getting over my emergency appendix removal 2 weeks ago

    Worst pain - before my appendix removal the only way i could describe it is it was like my intestine was trying to give birth to an alien that was on fire

    Although I think tooth ache comes a near second

    and they found a kidney stone while diagnosing my appendix so I've got that to look forward to too

    I agree. With acute physical pain your mind takes over and you somehow get through it. Not so much with mental pain.

    And to see an animal or otherwise helpless creature in pain is the most excruciating pain imaginable. And it's palpable.

    I haven't been in pain recently, I did have a cold at the weekend and my head felt like it was going to explode everytime I stood up.

    I'd have to agree with McWillow about the tooth thing. When my wisdom tooth was coming through it caused an abcess in my gum and the pain was horrendous. It drove me mad, I even started rocking backwards and forwards and everything and nothing I took seemed to help!

    I'm not very good with pain, it normally makes me cry. I'm a big baby!

    Definitely kidney (stone) pain for me. It has hospitalised me twice and made me have an operation!!!!! Followed closely by period pain- I have been known to pass out and/or throw up from pain caused by periods. :frown5:

    Oh, yeah I forgot. Sciatica. :mad:

    Last spring I had a tooth abscess. :( Yes that was among the worse of the worst. Worse still was the emergency root canal, not the procedure itself but after the anesthesia wore off. :( And on top of that, it was a huge pain in the pocketbook!

    WHAT??? What have I missed? Are you okay??? Is it because of the anticoagulants you were taking before? Good gawd girl that's serious. :(

    Apparently it's a common side effect of anti-coagulant tablets-who knew?! :p I thought I'd pulled a muscle, it was so painful! Mad! I spent a fun night in A&E with the doctor rabbiting on about meningitis and me sh!tting myself! I phoned work about 4am saying I wouldn't be in and that meningitis had been mentioned: the old head teacher died of that in July so everyone was wetting themselves! :eek:
