Re: Is a Really Bad Toothache the Worst Pain There Is?
Had a stab wound through my hand. Knife went throuh my palm and out the other side between my first and middle finger bones. Made a toothache seem rather pleasant. The worst part was at the hospital waiting for the Dr. I was keeping pressure on it to slow the bleeding and it felt like my hand was blowing up like a balloon.


I would imagine a severe, prolonged burn would be the worst as other posters have mentioned.

Re: Is a Really Bad Toothache the Worst Pain There Is?
Tooth aches are the worst. I had one last year. Huge cavity in one the molars. I prayed for death, was on the floor crying and screaming in agony.

Eventually the pain subsided but I developed an abscess on the gum of that tooth, figured I should probably go to the dentist since it could become dangerous if left untreated.

Dentist gave me some antibiotics and told me to come back in 10 days for a root canal. Ugh, that wasn't fun, but a cake walk compared to the pain I experienced.

Get your ass to the dentist, OP!

Re: Is a Really Bad Toothache the Worst Pain There Is?
OP, I have had tooth pain so bad I wished to die. It can be agony, pure and simple.

One thing I recently learned is people with severe tooth pain can go to the ER and be seen/given pain meds and even have emergency extractions done. Apparently, ER's always have a dentist they can get in for this.

Don't overdo the OTC meds, you can do permanent liver damage.

Another option I have used is Ambien - doesn't stop the pain but the next day you don't remember being miserable.

Sciatica. Yes. Crawling inch by inch on your hands and knees. but I'm not a woman so can't comment on childbirth, but been told both are equally bad - except sciatica lasts for weeks.

After my gall bladder was removed, I woke up in horrible pain... post-op c-section wasn't even close to what I felt.

I actually started to go into shock in the recovery room.
Well it seems so real I can see it
And it seems so real I can feel it
And it seems so real I can taste it
And it seems so real I can hear it
So why can't I touch it?
So why can't I touch it?

The worst pain I've ever felt is when I accidentally lit my nut sack on fire and my balls went up in flames. Then my giant 3 foot slong caught fire and also went up in flames, that was the second most painful.

Re: Is a Really Bad Toothache the Worst Pain There Is?
I've had an infection, dentist gave me antibotics, then i've come on holiday, i finished the antibiotics a week ago and now the pain is like nothing ive ever felt, its 5am where i am right now and only writing this to think about somthing else. if i bite down on the tooth, the pain is sickening, i am also going crazy.

There is also fear of being in this country and i cant get it fixed till i get home.

It's the worst pain in the world becusae it goes right through your nerves, that is why its the worst pain in the world, it will never go away, its the nerves, its right there, its omg, i'd much rather break a bone or childbirth as these are physical pain to that point in time, there is somthing so nasty about this right now, ive even started crying from pain and madness, I'm 27 btw.

I used to think migranes were bad but right now, in this moment in time, i can tell you no problem that this is the worst pain ive ever been in.

P.s. ive had many tooth aches and this is a proper one.

Re: Is a Really Bad Toothache the Worst Pain There Is?
Had an abscessed tooth so bad once, I was SOBBING from the pain and could not stop. Ended up going to ER in the middle of the night, the doc gave me antibiotics immediately and a script for Tylenol 3's. They worked, but I could not get them until the next day. I wanted to scream and shoot myself in the face to make it stop. It was AWFUL. As soon as the antibiotics knocked the infection down I had that sucker pulled.

Re: Is a Really Bad Toothache the Worst Pain There Is?
I've had two teeth fall right out of my mouth from basically rotting away, nerves and all, infections...everything. That horrible mind altering pain that you deal with day and night for months (can't afford a dentist).

And it was nothing compared to the time I had a Portuguese Man O' War (Jellyfish) wrap itself around my leg.

That pain was like...having someone take a radioactive saw, set it on fire until it's molten red and then saw into your leg while pouring salty lemonade on the wound as he went along, slowly sawing in to your skin, bones and nerves.

Then when he's done, he sets you on fire and pisses on you to put it out while electrocuting you with a tazer plugged directly into your knees.

It makes you want to get really good at science so you can invent a time machine and go back in time to before you ever felt that kind of pain because it's something that is almost just...inconceivably horrible.

Kidney stones. Nothing can compare in my experience. I've broken bones, had horrible toothaches, but the only pain that actually made me scream and vomit was from a kidney stone.

Re: Is a Really Bad Toothache the Worst Pain There Is?
In the ER pain meds are used when needed but there is always the fear of someone overdosing or using it for recreational uses.

The three things that will cause an ER to trot out the big guns (morphine/demerol/dilaudid) are:

Kidney Stones: This calls for enough Morphine that the patient is barely awake. You can get them to respond if you talk to them, but if you don't they zone off into their own little pain free world, if the dose is high enough. BTW: the patient should be on Oxygen level monitoring for the first few hours to make sure they don't forget to breath (overdose in other words.)

Testicular Torsion that cuts off the blood supply to the testicle. If this isn't repaired surgically in a few hours the testicle will die. The pain is horrible and can only be partially relieved unless you knock the patient out with morphine and demerol, and then repeat every time they awaken until the surgeon gets here.

Tooth abscess with high fever and wbc that confirms a serious infection. Normal treatment is to begin IV antibiotics and let a liter or two trickle in. Then switch the patient to oral doses of the same antibiotic. Also give them Morphine or Demerol in the drip or do an IV push of it. And when they're ready to go home, give them some IM steroids to reduce the inflammation or the inflammatory response. If the MS doesn't cut this kind of pain, then a four MG push of IV dilaudid (Hydromorphone) will do it. The room spins around, you feel sick to your stomach, and suddenly you're floating and the pain is WAY down there someplace behind you!

I despise docs who will hand a patient an RX for percoset and know full good and well that percoset is not going to touch this kind of pain. Why do doc's do this? Because they're afraid to use real drugs for fear of censure by the hospital staff.

Personally, i use what it takes to stop suffering. And I do not give a shit what my peers think. My purpose is to alleviate suffering and the narcotics can usually accomplish this in the right dose and repeated often enough.

I once had a woman brought into the ER with a gurney embedded in her stomach all the way thru to her spinal column. She had been "almost" cut in half. There was NOTHING we could do. She was dying. Her husband was called and arrived minutes after she did. We loaded her up on huge doses of Morphine so they could say goodbye and have their final moments without the pain being the only thing she was aware of. I gave her enough MS to kill three people and she chatted calmly for about 30 minutes before her BP started to drop. Then she told her husband she was sleepy, and kissed him one last time. She closed her eyes and died. As deaths go, it was a very peaceful one for both of them. Two days later I was subjected to a hospital board inquiry about the amount of MS I'd given her. Yes, it could have killed her. But then again, there was no other outcome from her injuries other than death. Medicine had nothing to offer her except a bit of pain control for her last 1/2 hour on this earth. Her husband came to testify before the inquiry board on my behalf. They backed down. I'd threatened publicity and major press coverage and her husband threatened the same. I did what was morally correct and gave her an easier and pain-free exit. She had the time to say goodbye to her husband and he didn't remember her last moments writhing in pain, but rather of a calm, sane woman knowing full well she was dying and able to say goodbye to her spouse and tell him that she loved him and always would do so.

But the witch hunts hospitals are afraid of narcotics even in cases like hers. I asked the hospital director that, if he was literally cut in half all the way to his spine, how much morphine would he want used? His response was "as much as it took to stop the pain!" I said - "even if that dose could end your life?" and he said "Yes, without a doubt. There was no longer a "quality of life" issue left. It was all about stopping pain long enough to allow them to part in peace. I did that, but paid one hell of a price for it for a few weeks during the inquiries.

I was exonerated of all wrong doing in the end. But to think that I could have lost my medical license had things gone the other way - it's absurd. Butt welcome to narcotic pain management in America. It nearly doesn't exist outside of pain centers, and/or hospice care...

Re: Is a Really Bad Toothache the Worst Pain There Is?
get a little glass, put in 1/2 water, just a little, and 1/2 bleach. find a way to get the mixture in your cavity or on the tooth or teeth and under the gums.

Leave on for about six to seven seconds, then rinse, do this three to four times. It will kill the pain and the infection.

Make sure the tooth is the right one, sometimes a tooth cavity above will cause the teeth below to hurt.

Make sure you wear clothes that you can throw away, bleach stains will get on them.

A tumor removed from inside of my head 3 times (3 different tumors) They had to cut off my ear drill threw the skull and remove the growth. Three skin grafts and two muscle grafts and 2 months of recovery. Now that hurt.

But to be far about it………….the worse pain that you have felt in your life hurts the same as the worst pain in my life. Saying they are equal because one would know no different.

Tooth pain is bad though.
