So unfortunately on xmas day my partner took a fall (no drink involved) and broke her ankle in 2 places. She is currently at home with her leg up (and i am on beckon call) and we have to wait for the swelling to go down before they can operate where they are going to place in two plates one either side. 
Anyway she is in considerable pain with it at the moment which they have given her pain relief for which seems to being working ok for her.
It got me to thinking what is the worst pain I have ever felt and for me it would have to of been kidney stones. OMG I cannot even describe the pain it was so intense.
I was given constant morphine to try and dull it down and at one stage I was given Ketamine and hell that took the pain away for a short time my god that is a trippy pain relief.
I had to wait for 6 hours before they could give me a scan to see how big it was and turned out it was not quite big enough and I had to wait for nature to take its course. A lot of morphine and time later it finally passed. Never ever want to go through that again.

Whats the worst pain you have ever been through.

Stepped in a ditch hidden by tall grass, twisted my knee, was crippled for weeks. Amazingly nothing broken but that didn't make me feel any better. The first days I could only get around by rolling from room to room in an office chair. Later I graduated to crutches but even that was difficult at first. After enough time it healed up like new and now it's like nothing ever happened.

Earlier this year I was on M-Eslon (morphine), Sevredol (morphine) and max dosage of Gabapentin for a few months with a herniated disc giving grief to a sciatic nerve which left me barely able to get out of bed while I waited for surgery. I was out of action from January until May, although I did manage to do two jobs in February that I couldn't do remotely from the laptop. Very pleased that's all over with!

Gout in my big toe - but then I've never given birth. With the gout, I just wanted someone to cut my foot off to get rid of the pain. First time, I didn't know what it was and thought I had broken my toe - even though I hadn't kicked anything.




Sometimes I just sit and think. Other times I just sit.

About 10 years ago I got pancreatitis. It felt for days like someone had grabbed all my intestines in their hands and was squeezing them. Unpleasant to say the least.

Meningitis. Worst thing I have ever experienced and would not wish it upon another living soul. The spinal taps they do are just an added bonus to the everlasting fun you are having.

Actually that's not entirely true. My first modem was 300 baud and it was an amazing experience. Like magic, I could reach out and touch the world and TALK to people I didn't even know. It was a lot like being a ham operator, which I also was, only better. This was long before the World Wide Web, even before the Internet, though a few universities were playing with Arpanet.

My local BBS was a lot like an early version of Geekzone and I met some interesting people there. This was in the days of MS-DOS and ASCII text and even dumb terminals and it only took 8 bits of data to send a character so even at 300 baud communications did not seem particularly slow. A gas expands to fill the space available to it and so does traffic and so does data. Texting each other in those days was just like linking YouTube videos today: It took about the same time at 300 baud as it does now at 30 Mbps. As someone once said, everything is relative (except that statement).

My sister had 5 kids and said she would have 10 more kids before getting a second bout of kidney stones. 

I've had kidney stones 3 times. The first time I BEGGED my wife to kill me and she had to restrain me from climbing out a window of the apartment building we were in at the time. 

The last time I had them I caught a taxi in the middle of the night to the hospital. I tried to walk into the hospital and fell flat on my face. 

I've also had 20+ years of lower back pain, which occasionally has been so bad that had I of been able to, I would  have ended myself to relieve the pain.

Before you think I'm a wuss, I had an operation on my foot which lasted an hour. They didn't administrator the drugs properly and I just gritted my teeth for the last 45 minutes of it.
