    This morning I asked a shoplifter to leave the shop and he spat in my face. I've washed my face and hair repeatedly, and changed my shirt, but I can still feel where the spit hit me. It was easily the most disgusting physical sensation I've ever experienced. I've broken bones before, and I once had to clean maggots out of a prosthetic eye, but this was worse.

    What's the worst physical sensation you've ever experienced?

    When I used to work in McDonald during college, working in drive thru, there is this guy who is a real bastard. One nite I ask him to repeat order and he start calling me SOB, all the four letter word, stupid, asshole and mother f----er. It not physical but I was so angry I could have kill him if I have a gun with me. I think he take pleasure in abusing innocent crewperson trying to make a living earning minimum wages. I hope that SOB is dead now and rot in hell.

    My best buddy Mike, get worse insult. He was doing drive thru, somehow he screw up somebody order . This customer spits on the money , cover/ wrap it up and handover the money to him for payment.

    Have to admit that the worst ever physical sensation I have experienced is waking up in the middle of the night with nausea and low back pain, which eventually reached into my groin and just squeezed non-stop. Turns out I had a kidney stone that was beginning to make its descent. Was never so glad to get to a hospital and get some pain medication!! Talk about pain. Some women who have had stones and kids say the stone is worse than child-birth! Lucky me!

    epiditimitis (that may be spelled incorrectly, but it's when your balls swell to enormous size and the pain is equally large).

    I'm seeing a pattern emerge. Pretty much anything that involves the genito-urinary tract in some sort of peril is not a nice experience?

    Kidney stones. Hands down.

    As much for psychological reasons as anything else. It's a very "helpless" sort of pain. Deep inside and with very little you can do about it. When I was regularly (like 30 in a month) having small stones, it was even recommended I go to a therapist it was wearing away at my mind so much.

    My worst physical sensation was a few days ago when I was eating and the food got stuck in my oesophagia and wouldn't go down. It happens sometimes when I eat too fast.

    Rupturing both my patellar tendons and the surgery afterward. I understand now why the mafia shoots people in the knees.

    When I got my wisdom teeth pulled. My head was so groggy, my mouth and gums were sore, and I was expectorating for about twenty minutes.

    Inflamed nerves, primarily upper back, arms, and chest.

    I've experienced it twice, and the first time was without any medication or soothing salve (I took Niquil, to no apparent avail). It consisted of a prolonged (lasted at least day), dull-yet-uncomfortably-warm tension within those areas to extent where I felt immobile.

    The accompanying fever added to the damage and I obsessed about geometric shapes (to the point of exclusion of other thoughts) and how my body consisted of such shapes for what felt like hours on end (I spent the full day in my room, 95% of it bedridden). While I have an enjoyment of personal pain in many forms, this was utterly unpleasant (though enlightening with regards to mysticism and revelation through illness).


    Another sensation was when I went to turn on the living room lights this past Christmas in the morning; my dad was working on the light switch and the live wiring was uncovered. It felt like waves of electrical current surging into my fingers, leaving my arm worn out for most of the day.


    The STD testing for gonorhea (and other STDs) with bristles being jammed into the urinary tract is its own amazing pain (though it is one I can enjoy; the sensation is incredible!).

    I get migranes. They use to be a lot worse when I was younger.

    They normally come on slowly, giving me approximately 10 minuts to drop whatever I'm doing and get home and to bed.

    At full force, the pain and pounding in my head are so severe, I lose sight in my left eye and the nausea is just nasty.

    The longest it's lasted for me is 48 hours. They are not as frequent or severe as they use to be but whenever people say they suffer from migranes, I totally feel their pain.

    I fell off my bike once (how Dutch!) and hurt a kidney. Couldn't walk for days.

    "What's the worst physical sensation you've ever experienced?"

    Having insects and snakes crawl over you when you can't move or do anything about it. It takes enormous willpower and self training not to move. Specifically being up to your neck in a swamp, and having something you can't even see crawling over you.

    God I hate snakes.

    I was doing a show one night and decided to do a trick i have done a MILLION times without any problem.

    I would place my right foot on a higher surface that the stage, at this bar it was a drink stand, then proceed to slide my left foot out and into a split. The result is pretty cool in that my legs are past 180 degrees in the split, you can only imagine how this looks.

    WELL this particular night i was dancing to "Gansta Love" by Eve featuring Alica Keys. Went into the split and my left knee, which i disslocated when i was 18, popped out on one beat of the song, and then popped right back in on the next beat, almost like it was choreographed that way.

    As if that wasn't enough pain, the song was less then half over. I had ton continue dancing. NOW many of you are probably like forget that, but you know... i was raised with that whole show must go on thing.

    Mind you there was only about 2min of the song left, but every time i put my left foot down or did ANY of the most basic steps i wanted to slit my throat so the pain would end.

    Thankfully it was the last time i had to dance that night and my friend had lined up 4 shots of vodka for when i hobbled off the stage.

    Worst sensation?

    Haveing a doctor stick needles in you arm and dig around durring an EEG.

    Having doctors squeeze out an absess in your abdomen after first sticking needles in with numbing medication that didn't really work that well...

    Being completely manic-mental (bi-polar) and being convinced that you were supposed to give away all your things to the theives that were there to readily take your stuff...

    Lying on the floor in your own vomit durring a vertico attack, while the paramedics are asking you dumb questions and wanting you to sign forms.

    Being around drug addicts that try to convince you that YOU are the one with the problems...

    Loosing a sense of who you are and loosing your will to be here while people try to tell you that a pill will make it all better.

    Migraines. The last really horrific one (knocks on wood) was about 4 years ago. It went on for a week. I had thrown up so much already that there was nothing but bile left. Just when I'd reached the point where I was begging to be shot and put out of my misery, an ER doc blasted me with demoral. I woke up a day later.

    Based on my limited experience with patients at the hospital... I'd say the worst I've seen is kidney stones.

    The worst I've ever experienced first hand... migraines and getting kicked in the nuts. Both made me puke from the pain.

    Toss up:

    1) Kidney stones. I experience them as a feeling that one of my nuts is being crushed - for hours.

    2) A fall caused my right kneecap to slip over to the right side of my leg - with damage to the ACL & medial meniscus. I relocated it myself because the pain was almost blackout-causing, and I didn't want to wait the 15-20 minutes for help to arrive.

    For duration of discomfort, kidney stones - for intensity of pain, kneecap.

    I'd just as soon avoid either in the future. ;)

    All of the above discussed, I would never wish that on my worst enemy.

    By now this thread has officially been picked up by sado-masochists and is now a pleasure forum.
