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 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.

This hurts. A lot. Do not step in a Lego.

2 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.

I always bite it with my lips.

This doesn't hurt at all.

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

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

It hurts like anything

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

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!

This happened to me more than 5 times.

Hurts more than everything else.

Girls don't understand

6 Spanking Spanking

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

7 Getting a tooth pulled

I had 8 baby teeth extracted between the ages of 9 and 10 years old (6 at once, plus the other 2 on separate occasions) and the only thing I felt was pressure (since novocaine blocks pain, but not pressure).

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

8 Hitting your ankle on a stunt scooter deck
9 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...

10 Sticking your finger in a McDonald's straw hole

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

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

My fingers are massive. But still, why?

Why would you even do this?

The Contenders
11 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

12

This hurts way more than having your body burned.

I guess literally nothing is painful.

Why is this literally nothing?

13 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.

14 Cramps

I have to deal with them every single month since I have a uterus. It's annoying to deal with, plus some months can be better or worse than others.

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.

15 Stepping on a tack

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

Ouch... Don't end up like Marv from Home Alone.

I actually sat on one.

16 Getting bit by a dog
17 The days after your wisdom teeth are removed 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...

18 Getting a paper cut
19 Getting hit by a mini football
20 Wisdom teeth coming in Wisdom teeth coming in

As cool as having extra teeth sounds, it is painful. Teeth are bones. That you need to use to eat and survive. When there isn't enough space for all of them, they begin fighting with one another and it feels like your mouth is being torn apart.

Imagine your wisdom teeth actually coming in instead of being impacted and completely buried inside of both jaws.

I have to get all 4 of mine taken out on 2/24 even though I'm only 15. :'(

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.

21 Abdominal pain
22 Migraines
23 Drinking cold water too fast

Hurts your throat!

24 Biting a canker sore

I have one right now. The worst part is you want to bite it cause every time you close your mouth it wiggles it's way into your teeth and you just want to bite the bit of dangly skin so its not there any more but it makes it WORSE.

25 Heartburn/Indigestion

You feel a bit nauseous and won't to puke, but you don't puke. It always goes away after you burp really loud
