Top Ten Most Painful But Non-Serious Injuries


The Top Ten

1 Stub Toe

Its funny when you stub your toes, because you always do that messed up dance while dragging your foot you hit and sort of humming a tune to take your mind off the pain laugh out loud - Danielsun182

This pain is unbelievable. God forbid we break them. It's always my baby one:(

When I was in junior high this happened way to often at night good lord! This hurts a lot - Curti2594

2 Paper Cut

Stubbing your toe will give you a 5 minute pain, paper cuts will torment you for a day or so

Ok seriously this is by far the worst... In high-school I once dropped all of my notebooks and binders all over me and got some of the largest ' papercuts! So painful

Pretty painful. But though it isn't serious. This should be 1! - funnyuser

It stings when you clean it with alcohol!

3 Bite Tongue

My mother slipped and fell and hit her jaw on a table, forcing her jaw upwards with incredible force. She split her tongue in half and blood was squirting out.

This has to be the worst because one minute you're enjoying your sandwich and the next...

Your chewing a nice piece of mint chewing gum and before you know it...

Ouch this is really painful

4 Hit Funny Bone

I almost start crying because I think it Hurts but then I feel silly afterwards! - Curti2594

I hate this so much! I think it's the worst feeling in the world.

A sickening pain, and funny for others. - emraldYE

It only hurts for five minutes.

5 Catch Finger In Door

This is very very painful! - Kiteretsunu

My friend got her arm slammed in the door and broke her arm

You got that right.

I just recently did this. It created a deep cut on my ring finger. Getting your finger slammed into a door hurts, but it shouldn’t be serious (unless it gets infected) - KingSlayer93316

6 Bash Head On Low Ceiling
7 Sprain Ankle

Yes it IS bloody painful when it happens - that's the point of this to ten, but it's not a SERIOUS injury, you won't die from it. - Britgirl

It needs months of agonising treatment, and it's bloody painful when it happens, so I wouldn't say non-serious. - PositronWildhawk

This really sucks. It’s awfully painful. - PackFan2005

8 Bite Lip
9 Getting a Splinter
10 Hit Knee On Door Edge

The time I did this, I threw an armful of hardback books across the room in temper. The bruise and bump lasted for ages! - Britgirl

The Newcomers

? Twisting Your Ankle
? Getting Bread Crumbles Up Your Nostrils

The Contenders

11 Getting Kicked In the Balls

This can be serious, it still hurts to run being kicked in the nuts so many times as a kid. - benhos

Worse pain ever my pain felt sick to my stomach and I was kicked there

Your balls are THE softest spot in your body. It hurts, and I know because people have done it to me multiple times

Actually, the brain is the softest spot, but balls are very sensitive.
If you mean sensitive, then yeah the balls are very sensitive. - Gregory

Playing soccer is the worst when it comes to this. - PackFan2005

12 Stand On a Hard Object While Only Wearing Socks

I've stood on a piece Lego... Bad language followed

Come on, this joke is getting old - pupcatdog

14 Fracture Finger
15 Needle Under Fingernails

Oh, don't. - Entranced98

16 A Poke In the Eye

I'm always doing this. The pain is crazy

17 Cat Scratch

It was not at all pleasant when my cat fell into a bathtub full of scalding hot water, before jumping onto my chest and embedding his claws into my chest, and scraping slowly downwards, allowing scalding hot water and stinging soap into the deep scratches. It hurt for weeks and I spent hours afterwards swearing at the cat. - PositronWildhawk

Well, if a cat has rabies and scratches you it can be life threatening. - Gabriola

I have had a cat run on my face which left a lot of scratches

18 Getting Stung by a Nettle

It hurts and itches, and when you itch it, it hurts even more!

That's nothing, unless it's the Gympie

19 Canker Sore
20 Cutting the Spaces Between Your Fingers

What do you mean by this

21 Needle in Genitals


I feel bad for ANYONE who had to go through this - KingSlayer93316

22 Bullet Ant Sting

Name says it, it's like getting shot by a bullet.

23 Burn Tongue On Hot Drink

Oh, yes! This is awful! You are left with tiny, painful blisters that take ages to go! - Britgirl

You have no idea what this feels like! (My stepmum FORCES me to drink hot chocolate while it's still hot! )

I don;t understand why people drink coffee or tea so soon liek that burns you tongue and mouth and you feel it or your taste buds are dead for liek a month - Curti2594

24 Popping Your Wrist

Sk8rs will know - oldfashionedmickeymousecol1995

25 Open Bone Break

I broke my leg on a trampoline when I was 7.
I was in so much pain and I never cried so much in my life.
My leg was swollen and I had to be taken to the hospital and undergo my 1st leg surgery.
I never used a trampoline again. - Gregory

26 Splinter In Your Tongue


27 Getting Water in your Nose
28 Scooter Into the Ankle

My sister fell on her ankle with a scooter when she started college.
She was crying in pain.
Those things are dangerous, - Gregory

29 Muscle Spasm

Oh crap, these hurt like hell. I just got a spasm in my waist today... I fainted... and it hurt - KingSlayer93316

How are those serious? - Gregory

30 Getting Stung by a Bee

If you are allergic to bees then it is a trip to the ER or getting stabbed by an epinephrine pen.

That's nothing, other than how dangerous it might be.
The pain isn't too bad, but if you're allergic, you could go down with nasty symptoms, like really big welts and possibly fainting.

31 Tarantula Hawk Sting

It feels like you’ve been electrocuted.
It’s so painful.

It’s blinding and shocking, as if a running hairdryer has fallen into your bathtub.
It only lasts 5 minutes, but it’s extremely painful and unforgettable. - Gregory

32 Freezing Wart or Skin Tag

I’ve had a tag and had it removed by freezing.
It’s done with liquid nitrogen at -50°F, which is FAR colder than ice in your freezer.
It can cause frostbite.
I’ll never forget. - Gregory

33 Losing a Nail
34 Scratching Your Throat After Swallowing a Crisp
35 Whip Your Face With Phone Charger Wire
36 Get Punched In the Face

Take it from me, it does not feel good, and blood does not taste good

37 Cigarette Burn

Yeah, not very pleasant... - benhos

I've never smoked :D

38 Hangnail
39 Childbirth

People can die from bleeding out you know... - benhos

Childbirth is pretty SERIOUS...

I find it amusing that someone considers this as an 'injury' haha! - Britgirl

40 Bee Sting

I got stung by a bee 4 times in my life.
I thought it was painful at the time, but after learning about the Tarantula Hawk and Bullet Ant, the bee sting feels like a walk in the park. - Gregory

I loathe bee stings so much.
Just glad it ain't a killer bee

That's nothing, and should be near the bottom of the list.
The Killer bee swarming is serious, but if you're looking for painful non-serious injuries, try the Bullet Ant Sting.

41 Crushed Testicles

I actually think this IS pretty serious as an injury. - Martin_Canine

This would hurt like hell and would render you useless and crippled on the floor crying

42 Needle in Eyeball
43 Biting the Inside of Your Cheek
44 Bite Cheek
45 Swallowing Ice Cubes
46 Getting Something Cold On Your Teeth

So cold and painful! - mayamanga

47 Ingrown Toenail

I had eight of these in my lifetime. I once had four ingrown toenails on both sides of both big toes... at the SAME TIME! I could barely walk and run because of how painful it is. After surgery, it sucked. I had to soak my toes in salt water for four weeks, and it BURNED! All of this because of new shoes. This should be a little higher on the list because of how awful these can get. Oh yeah, you can die from this because of infection, and they can sometimes grow back weird, and get ingrown again! This is the worst toe injury you can get - KingSlayer93316

48 Cutting or Ripping Your Finger Tips
49 Earache
50 Getting Pepper Sprayed

You would be in UNBELIEVABLE PAIN all over your body.
You're Burning with the Sun's temperature, you're blind, you're coughing, you're choking, and you CAN'T BREATHE!

Of course it can't be serious, since it doesn't do much damage to your body, and also it's very short lasting, anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour, but it FEELS like an eternity because it's SO PAINFUL!

BEST concept of burning in Hell.
