Top Ten Most Painful But Non-Serious Injuries


The Top Ten

1 Stub Toe

Ouch. - Firemist

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:(

2 Paper Cut

I hate how whenever you get paper cuts it hurts for a second and then for five seconds it stops hurting and then it burns for a couple of minutes - DrayTopTens

The paper constantly cutting you seems to hurt more than the aftermath, but if just a paper cut hurt, then imagine spilling a beaker of hydrochloric acid on it.
That’s what a sting from a red wasp is described as. - Gregory

It stings when you clean it with alcohol!

Yup, know these too well. - Entranced98

3 Bite Tongue

Ouch this is really painful

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...

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

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

This is very very painful! - Kiteretsunu

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

You got that right.

6 Bash Head On Low Ceiling
7 Sprain Ankle

As a person who has sprained their ankle before, I can say this is pretty serious as when I sprained mine, it left me unable to walk on that foot for a day.

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

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

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

8 Bite Lip
9 Stepping on a Lego Brick

This should be #1 it hurts so much more than a stub toe

It's so painful it made it on the list TWICE!

Really hurts when you're bear footed! - funnyuser

Come on, this joke is getting old - pupcatdog

10 Needle in Eyeball

This is serious. It could blind you

The Contenders

11 Getting a Splinter

It hurts so bad! - DrayTopTens

12 Hit Knee On Door Edge

In my opinion, hitting your knee is more painful than hitting your funny bone - DrayTopTens

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

13 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

14 Getting Kicked In the Balls

Absolutely terrible, one minute you are playing a nice game of soccer, next minute you lost the will to live.

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

This hurts like hell, and is one of the worst things about being a guy... - KingSlayer93316

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

15 Soap or Shampoo in Eyes
16 Scratching Your Throat After Swallowing a Crisp
17 Stand On a Hard Object While Only Wearing Socks

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

18 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.

19 Needle Under Fingernails

Oh, don't. - Entranced98

20 Cat Scratch

My bunny does this. It hurts so much and you have to use paper to dry the blood. Only people who have bunnies and cats can relate and understand. Dog owners don't relate. that's why cutting nails is a life saver.

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

21 Canker Sore

Yep, I agree!

22 Getting Something Cold On Your Teeth

I hate it so much - DrayTopTens

23 Fracture Finger
24 Popping Your Wrist

Sk8rs will know - oldfashionedmickeymousecol1995

25 Needle in Genitals

I don't want to think about it - DrayTopTens


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

26 A Poke In the Eye

This can be serious, if the poke was strong enough it could blind the person. - XxembermasterxX

I'm always doing this. The pain is crazy

27 Get Punched In the Face

It was serious to Rudy fact, deadly.

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

28 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

29 Cutting the Spaces Between Your Fingers

What do you mean by this

30 Bullet Ant Sting

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

31 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

32 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.
Imagine getting hit in the leg by lightning or someone tased you there.
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.
I still remember and I'll never forget. - Gregory

33 Splinter In Your Tongue

How though? Don't tell me people actually find a stick full of splinters and lick it. - XxembermasterxX


34 Getting Water in your Nose
35 Muscle Spasm

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

36 Eating Carolina Reaper

Once I ate an Asian chili pepper IN ONE BITE. I regretted it.

It's the world's hottest pepper. You wouldn't want to eat it. It's horrible.

37 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

38 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

39 Over Exfoliated Skin

If you exfoliate a lot, you might lose your dead layer, but if you gown down to the dermis or deeper, it’s said to be debilitating.
Your skin turns red, shiny, burned-looking, dry, and eventually it peels off.
You may be taking bath or a shower and cleaning yourself after a busy day, but if you go too far, the price to pay could be nasty.
Yet due to the dryness, it overproduces sebum to make up for the lack of moisture, so you’re in for an extra shine and runaway acne breakouts.
Though I find that shine amazing, better than that of a celebrity, which is why I can’t help but do this at times. - Gregory

40 Tetanus Shot

Not painful

They’re one of the most painful shots around, but at least they prevent a far more serious condition such as tetanus. - Gregory

41 Laser Treatment

You are beamed with a laser on your skin, and it’s painful in the most.
Ever got hit by a rubber band or dripped with hot frying oil, then you’ll get the same discomfort/pain with a laser treatment.
Afterwards there are holes or burn marks formed and they take a long time to heal.
It’s used in tattoo removal as well as plastic surgery.
Ever got an eye treatment, it's particularly painful there since the cornea is extremely sensitive and becomes dry after the treatment.
Definitely an example. - Gregory

Laser treatment after an eye operation is extremely painful and uncomfortable. It's the only laser treatment I've ever had - and one I don't fancy repeating. - Britgirl

42 Losing a Nail
43 Whip Your Face With Phone Charger Wire
44 Cigarette Burn

Yeah, not very pleasant... - benhos

I've never smoked :D

45 Hangnail

Oh god yes

46 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

47 Bee Sting

I got stung by a bee 7 times in my life.
I thought it was painful at the time, but after learning about the Tarantula Hawk, Bullet Ant, Japanese Giant Hornet, the Executioner Wasp, 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.

48 Crushed Testicles

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

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