Top Ten Things That Hurt Way Worse Than You'd Think They Would

When Nicholas Angel said about being stabbed, "it was the single most painful experience of my life", it was an expected response. Getting stabbed has to be horrific. Naturally, you'd assume the pain would be intense.

But what about the smaller things that seem inconsequential yet, when they happen, they take you to your knees? The types of things that certain profanities were almost designed for?

This list is for those unexpected things that hurt so badly it brings whatever you were doing to a complete halt.
The Top Ten
1 Stepping on a Lego

Yes! I was hoping this would be number one.I had just said this should be on the list and here it is! My brother had a lot and I would play with them and one day I stepped on one! IT HURT SO BAD!

Can't tell you how many times I did this as a little kid. As Tim Hawkins said, we should probably just fight terrorists with Legos.

So true. It really hurts when you step on a Lego.

Its like stepping on a rock or pebble

2 Hitting your ankle on a stunt scooter deck

so we had off road scooters and my break bar stapped when I hit my foot on the deck the spike of a rust broken metal bar went into my foot


3 Biting into a popsicle with your front teeth

I feel like my front teeth want to commit suicide when I bite into something cold.

The first bite is always the worst bite.

Not painful, but really uncomfortable

I always bite it with my lips.

4 Hitting the soft spot between your kneecap and inner knee on a table leg

OH! That must hurt…!

This is how JFK actually died, fun fact... Uhuh... SEARCH YOUR FEELINGS, YOU KNOW IT TO BE TRUE!

5 Getting kicked in the balls

I'm a girl so I don't know what this feel like but ohhh that's gotta hurt!

It does hurt a lot but everyone knows how much it hurts

The worst pain I've ever felt in my life

This happened to me more than 5 times.

6 Sticking your finger in a McDonald's straw hole

I don't know why I did this. My finger got stuck for a while.

You'd have to have tiny fingers. (Or a big straw.)

If you've done this, you know what pain is!

My fingers are massive. But still, why?

7 Biting your tongue

Wait till you get a canker sore from this...

One of my friends in Elementary School years ago bit a hole in their tongue and had to go into the emergency room. :(

It hurts like anything

Yep hurts!

8 Spanking

As an Asian who grows up with this type of discipline method, I totally understand.

Everyone knows in they're childhood this was the bane of our existince - Stakamakataka

9 Getting a tooth pulled

I actually have had two teeth pulled and I was fully conscious. Didn't hurt at all.

10 Stepping on a tack

Wouldn't this be something you DID think would hurt?

Had no idea that this would hurt

I actually sat on one.

The pain.

The Contenders
11 Getting a paper cut under your nail bed

This hurts so much I can feel it right now, with safe hands. And that's never happened to me before...

12 Your toenail getting bent back too far

Getting any nails bent backwards hurts real bad. The more horizontal curve they have, the worse it hurts.

happened to many times

13 Swimming with your eyes open

Swimming with your eyes open doesn't hurt...unless you are swimming in a very salty ocean

Do ever wonder why so many people wear goggles?
Try it yourself

When I sleep with my eyes open for a while my eyes usaully burn

everyone in my fam says it doesn't like bitch ypu lyen

14 The days after your wisdom teeth are removed

I have heard about this...some people actually hardly feel any pain after the surgery. I may need my wisdom teeth removed in the future...hopefully the recovery form surgery won't be too painful for me.

I went through this in December and it was agonizing...

dreading the day


Why is this literally nothing?

16 Getting hit by a mini football
17 Getting bit by a dog

I don't know why but every time you run away from a viscous dog it always goes for the ass and the dog runs away as you scream pain and terror :(

18 Cramps

It actually is very painful. I tend to end up writhing in pain and bite my clothing to stop myself from crying out, whimpering instead.

It just hurts so bad for some people

19 Abdominal pain

The worst ones are the cramps that occur before diarrhea

20 Migraines
21 Hitting your knee on steel cooking furniture

Walking gonna hurt from now on...

22 Drinking cold water too fast

Hurts your throat!

23 Biting a canker sore
24 Wisdom teeth coming in

When my wisdom tooth came in, I was in CRAZY pain. When I told my mom, she said that when babies and toddlers are teething, it is also that painful. Funny thing is that I don't remember that part of when I was little, so it felt literally 1 million% more painful then when my baby teeth came in.
