Worst Bones to Break


The Top Ten

1 Spine

My friend was at a trampoline park and he went to do a flip and landed on his neck. He stood up then immediately fell to the floor. He was rushed to Valley Children's. They said he had broken his spine and his neck. He is in a wheelchair and is currently paralyzed from the waist down. About 4 weeks ago he was able to barely move his arms. So sad.

This would be the worst if this happened

I broke both heels. The first I broke a number of years ago (when I was about 20). I limped for 3 years; after being able to walk properly I suffered stiffness every morning, along with limited range of motion due to the joint damage. A year and a half ago (when I was in my sixties), I broke my other heel after falling from the roof and landing on a brick. I had surgery and 9 screws were placed in my heel to repair the bone. I struggle to walk without a limp, need pain meds, and have very limited range of motion. I am aggressively trying to break down the fibrous scar tissue causing the severe pain and limited range of motion, but have had little success. My goal is to walk without a limp after 2 years, but I fear it will more likely be 3. The heel is a terrible bone to break. However, I feel for others who have had spinal and head injuries that have resulted in far worse pain and suffering than I have experienced.

Breaking your spine is by far the worst. You are paralysed for life and will never be able to walk or move properly for the rest of your life. You will be in immense pain for your whole life and you will be stuck in a wheelchair. I've been in a wheelchair since I was 8 years old and was in a car crash but I'm thankful I didn't break my neck or spine

2 Collarbone

Broke my collarbone playing american football. I didn't feel a pop or anything, but I felt like I got a big cut. I ran off the field, when all of the sudden, my adrenaline wore off. It was the most excruciating pain I have ever felt. The worst part was getting my pads off, I had to raise my arm to do that. After the initial shock, which lasted an hour. Throught the first week or two any sudden movement of my whole broken side gave me excruciating pain. The worst part, by far, was showering. The pain the so extreme I would have convulsions that would not subside for upwards of half an hour, I just kept on involuntarily flexing my collarbone muscles for what felt like forever. Though I feel like neck should be higher above this. (Because you can die) This is in my opinion one of the eorst bones to break.

I broke my left clavicle in football when I challenged for a header but the guy didn't jump and I went over the top of him when I landed I heard a pop and when I got up I went to run and I took one running step I paused the pain was unbearable but it stopped when I started walking so at this point I knew it was bad but I didn't think it was a broken clavicle so I walked off the pitch to the changing rooms sat down then all of a sudden the worst pain I've ever felt just shot up to my clavicle and shoulder area I started to cry so I went to find the doctor he told me I have broken my clavicle my left one and I went to hospital they confirmed I had broken my clavicle then my dad come to pick me up from Kingston hospital it was a hour and half drive and we hit a couple speed bumps and the pain made me cry every time and I had to sleep in a certain position for a couple weeks the pain lasted 3 days my mum had to shower me for a week (I wore boxers and shorts when she showered me) she ...more

I broke my left collarbone during a soccer match with my high school soccer team, I was just subbed in the pitch and within a matter of seconds I was challenged by two guys on my left and right side. As I passed the ball the guy on my right swiped my foot and I fell on my shoulder, as I fell the same guy who swiped my foot fell on me causing me to break my bone. I did hear a crack but I didn’t think nothing much of it. They didn’t call a foul but I quickly stood up and was given a through ball. As I was sprinting to get the ball I swung my left arm and quickly felt a burst of pain that is unexplainable. I stopped and asked for a sub. There was no doctor at the field so they just gave me an ice pack. After that I was in so much pain. By second half I began crying because of that pain and I told my coach I needed to see a doctor to know if I dislocated my shoulder or broke something, and they called my parents and was taken to the emergency room of a near by hospital. They took ...more

I recently was in a bicycle crash. I was unconscious for a while because I hit my head off the road(I didn't have a helmet on). I still don't and probably never will remember the crash. Hospital was an hour away and over every pothole was torture. The pain eased away after around 45 minutes. When I got to hospital it was x rayed. My left collar bone was broken along with my right elbow. My elbow wasn't in much pain but I do not have a lot of strength in that arm. I cannot fully extend it without pain. My left arm is in a sling and will remain for around 5 more weeks. It feels like there is nothing wrong with my collar bone until I take the sling off. I can hardly move my arm an inch without feeling pain. I need help with almost everything, showering, getting dressed, and eating sometimes. I can't wait until it heals

3 Skull

I've fractured my skull 3 times, not really that bad, didn't die, not paralyzed. Hurts but it's not a debilitating break. Broke my coccyx (tailbone) in middle school football by not wearing my pad and falling hard on a rock on our brand "new" football practice field that had only been roughed and sod never laid,
Very painful but didn't last long and healed fairly quickly. Broke both thumbs, again, fairly painful at first, but "healed" quick still have limited range of motion and only occasionally causes pain.
Fractured my calcaneus(heel) falling off a roof and screamed in agony, couldn't walk for 6 months, and still have pain everyday 2 years later, definitely my worst break. I would assume spine and maybe femur are the only more painful breaks you can have.

Its horrible you would probably die or be in serious pain

If your skull breaks, you probably won't survive, or be the same again. By far the worst bone to break. Well, technically, more than one bone, but still. - PositronWildhawk

I cracked my head open when I was a baby because my mom dropped me (on accident)

4 Neck

I currently have a broken neck and yes you can potentially die and may become paralyzed but I am not so there is hope if you do break a vertibrae in the neck

If you brake your neck you could die and if you survive your paralyzed from the neck down and that is really bad

Broken neck should be 2 broken clavicle should be 8 - toorh

If you break your neck you will be in pain and suffering. I hurts a lot and you can get paralyzed for the rest of your life.

5 Tailbone (butt)

I bruised my tailbone and I as not able to sit properly for months. When I had to go on vacation, I had to stand up every 10 minutes otherwise I wouldn't be able to get up.

That sounds painful


Broke my tailbone giving birth to my first child who was posteria (spine against spine). Excruciating pain for months, painful to sit, stand, any movement. Going over the smallest bumps in the road when in the car was also excruciating. 19 years ago it broke and occasionally still have problems.

6 Leg

I went skiing with my friend lily and my ski got caught in some powder and my boot didn't detach from the ski so while I was falling forward I heard a loud snap coming from my leg then felt the worst pain of my life I was calling out to the people on the ski lift to get ski patrol and when they finally got there I had to roll on to my back so they could get me in the ski tobogganwhen we got to the ski injury place at the bottom of the hill they had give me an IV (I'm horrified by needles I was more scared to get an IV then anything and my friends mom had to calm me down) then I went to the hospital got an x-ray then went to the children's hospital got my cast and spent the the night it turns out that I have too breaks a fracture and a spiral fracture in my tibia and fibula (this was 5 weeks ago I'm still In the cast and got got my cast shortened from a full leg cast to a below the knee cast today)(also I'm only ten this was a lot of piano and pressure to put on someone my age)

Was running after a ball in soccer, had all my weight on one leg as I went to kick the ball, cleat stuck in ground. Heard the loudest snap ever, all my teammates 100 ft away heard it. didn't feel it all right away till I laid on the ground. Worst pain I've felt by far, didn't know how to react to it. Ended snapping my fibula in half and my tibia barely held together.

I was slide tackled in soccer, cracked my tibia in 2 different places. The bone was indented and poking at my back calf. Later I was set in a cast instead of surgery and misaligned my tibia to my femur, so of course surgery was next. Here I am now with 2 rods and 8 screws

I currently have a tib-fib fracture, I double fractured my fibula completely in half and than I had 2 different fractures on my tibia. I did not go into shock and it was the worst pain of my life, I was playing in a lacrosse tournament and I was playing defense, when I was running back someone stuck there stick in between my legs and I fell and landed off it terribly, I am currently on the blink of having surgery if my leg doesn't properly heal, which is a high possibility. I remember when I was sitting there waiting to get it set and I got put on Fentanyl, and it wore off ever 30 mins ish and after it got work off it legit made me cry, begin honest and I never cry, I have a huge pain tolerance but the pain is getting way better after 3 weeks but it is such a pain too sleep, I have roll over it so many times, and every time it hurts so much.

7 Patella

I shattered my patella into multiple peaces as well as my femur during a head-on car crash. At the time of the break, all I could feel was the intense pain from my knee, I had no idea I had even broken my femur. It wasn't until surgery to fix my knee that it was discovered that my femur was broken as well.

Further to this, once the femur has been fixed from surgery there is only minimal pain from recover compared to the recovery for my patella.

You do not often experience permanent damage from a femur break where as you may never fully recover from a broken patella (personal experience). I now walk with a permanent limp and am unable to bend my knee past 90 degrees.

I broke my patella into a few pieces and required surgery to repair it. At the time of the injury, the pain was unbearable, I was unable to move or speak, only scream out in pain. It's worth mentioning my kneecap was also severely dislocated. After surgery, I had to be very careful to keep up with my pain meds fro the first few weeks, as if they wore off in the night I would wake up screaming in pain. My leg was immobilised in a straight upper thing to ankle brace for 2 months. I'm now 2.5 months in, and I am doing exercises to try to get my leg to bend. I have very little movement and they exercises are excruciating, and impossible at times. the swelling is still very bad.

My surgeon says another 8 weeks before I'm back at work. (In a physical job). That's a total of 4 months off work. Another 6 months at least before I can do any sport other than swim.

From what I've heard, everyones experience with a broken knee is different. Some very painful and requiring surgery ...more

Patella fracture is horrible. For a small bone it has a huge function. Recovery is on the order of years and depending on the severity you will likely always have some degree of disability with pain and loss of function

I broke my knee last week, I have got a massive cast on for 6 weeks and wont be able to do any physical activity for at least 10 weeks. Also not to mention the extreme amount of pain when it happened and the very uncomfortable drive to hospital.

8 Foot

I have a "Jones" break also...it doesn't hurt when I walk on it and stuff it just gets sore after walking on it lol this is my third time breaking it, and evryone at school thinks I'm faking it

I broke my foot years ago and frankly it wasnt as bad as everything I've gone through since. You just need to listen to the doctor and stay off it until it heals.

I have a "Jones" fracture and it is killing me. I am on week 6 in a cast. Just had surgery to put a 4 inch screw into my 5th metatarsal and now I have 8 more weeks in a cast with another 4 in a boot. There might be more painful bones to break, but nothing is more annoying as 3-5 months on crutches because of a hairline fracture in your little pinky toe.

I have broken multiple things on my left leg broken leg 16 months old, fractured heel, 12 years old, and now my talus(ankle) uggh

9 Femur

I broke and cracked my femur in a horse riding accident. When I sat up on the ground my left leg from the femur was bent to the right, so In a panic, I straighten it, agony is the only word suitable. I was lifted into a Jeep without any pain relief. My leg swelled with blood, I lost 2 pints of blood. While I waited for the ambulance the pain was horrid, a constant pain. I just cried. I ended up being airlifted to hospital. I received blood because I was weak and tired from the bleeding. For a 16yr old girl bedpans are very embarrassing. I was told before the surgery that it was going to be a very painful operation. 3-4 hour operation and I had a rod inserted with 2 nails and the rod goes into the joint at my hip because of the crack. Walking was extremely painful afterwards, probably more painful that the break itself. I was in so much pain at night that I had dreams of a endless supply of instant pain relief medication. One of my scars got infected which was less than ideal. I spent ...more

Like most here, I have had my share of injuries over the course of the last 32 years... For bone pain, I would easily say the femur is probably one of the worst pains imaginable. There were days where I would have seriously considered removing the entire leg all together. Due to a birth defect, I needed to have my femurs cut off and reattached with a plate (to be removed no sooner than 12 months post op). I have had to do this twice now in the last 10 year, and I honestly can't tell you a pain worse than the femur. The good news is I only have 2 legs so now that's out of the way... Ribs are definitely a close second, if they didn't heal quickly (compared to femur) this would be number 1 in my book. Because ribs constantly have to move the pain can seem unforgiving and relentless; god forbid you sneeze, laugh, cough or BREATHE! The femur takes months to heal... and even then there is still this dull ache all the time. Not a bone, but the ACL has got to be a close second. When I was ...more

The most painful bone to break

Beyond the worst. I had to be moved on to the stretcher with no pain medications to assist, and I never knew my body could hurt to this degree. I've had other serious health issues and bone issues, but a broken femur, oh my goodness. I will never forget that level of pain.

10 Arm

Broke my humerus in a car accident and I couldn't even put into words the pain I was in. I never thought pain like that could exist.

Proximal humerus fractures are extremely painful with level 7 and level 8 pain being almost constant for the first several days at least. Nights are very excruciating for a long period of time too as there is no way to sleep without the fracture being extremely irritated. Two to three hours of sleep is the norm. Recovery seems to be "by the inch". Pain starts out the first week like excruciating sharp knife like stabbing bone pain that hits intensely every time one makes any kind of a re positioning move - one does not even want to try to move when you are experiencing any less pain even momentarily. The pain evolves into more throbbing/aching type pain that is still around level 6 by the third to fourth week. It is like enduring a "pain marathon" healing the bone - then therapy starts! Written four weeks after initial injury.

I broke my arm in late 2017 and it was the worst pain I had ever experienced. It feels like a strong rubber band is squeezing it really really hard and the rubber band is on fire.

I have recently broke my ulna in my arm and I have never had a harder time to sleep last week I bruised my sternum too all because of football

The Contenders

11 Wrist

Its like stubbing your toe but its your wrist ant it lasts a lot longer

Hurts like hell I got pins in and I fainted when they were taking them out and I was so high on laughing gas in a&e when I did it I can’t remember but when it happened I kept blacking out.

I've broken and ankle, nose, and fingers but the most painful bone to go has been my radial. I had a colles fracture in my right wrist and had to spend 3 nights in hospital and have to operations. I was off work for six weeks. I can no make a first, struggle to write and hold anything. This has definitely been the worst break.

12 Ribs

A bit over 2 years ago I was hit by a car while cycling and suffered multiple fractures to my pelvis, hip, spine and elbow while they all still give me discomfort to this day they were nowhere near as bad as my broken ribs. I broke every rib on right side ribs 1 to 12 with ribs 2 to 10 broken in 2 places throw in puncture to my lung as well. I have a deformation of the right thoracic clavicle as more than half of them didn't heal properly. They still give me a great deal of discomfort to this day and will continue to do so in the future

shear hell

For sure ribs is way more painful than arm or wrist. Like I get it if you full on shatter your arm in like 5 different places but a simple break or crack in the arm is no where near as painful as a rib. Even the slightest damage to a rip can cause immence pain as every token you breath, move your body or your arm or your shoulder or your head - it hurts. Even when you go to lye down to rest, the pressure of your body when you lye down hurts even more so there isn’t really a good way to get a break (pardon the pun). The pain also extends down your limbs (often to your shoulder, upper arm, elbow and neck) which then feel have a constant ache as if they had a slight break in then too. Whereas and simple break in arm or wrist or leg - depending on the extremity of the break - you can usually find a comfortable position to rest in and take some meds and you’ll be right. People also sympathise as you have crutches and a cast but as with a rib you just gotta let it do its thing, people ...more

Broke rib #9 which punctured my lung and had to have a chest tube, most painful thing I have ever experienced

13 Ankle

I broke my ankle on a large jumping castle, I jumped of a ledge around 5-6 meters high and landed on an inflated target, however when I landed I heard a loud snap. I broke one of my growing plates as well as dislocated it. It sucks because you can't walk and it hurts like absolute hell! I had a large metal wire sticking out of my foot, so it could move that growing plate back into place.

Never have a felt such a sharp pain. I shattered the tibia at the ankle, broke the fibula, and split the two of them apart the ankle joint. Had a plate, 11 screws, and two Syndesmosis TightRopes put in my ankle. Was non-weight bearing for 3 months. Still often have moderate pain and occasional sharp pains in the ankle region.

I broke my ankle a few years ago. Shattered it to 3 pieces, my growth plate to 7, and tibia to 4. It was the worst pain I’ve ever felt in my life. I had 4 screws and 4 pins placed in. I was on crutches for more than 6 months. Even after 5 years I still can’t stand for longer than an hour or so may kind of sport that involves running.

God damn I broke my ankle playing soccer. Some dirty player came at me nasty. Worst pain every! But maybe cause I broke both my fibula and tibia. I had to get surgery, so now I got a plate and some screws in my foot. Breaking bones hurt in general but I think the ankle bones hurt so much

14 Sternum

Even breathing hurts; coughing and sneezing is excruciating

Way worse than tailbone

If you were to break your sternum, your done. Part of it will puncture the lungs, another part may hit the heart, and even the liver can get hit with the sharp broken parts.

I've broken my sternum and even though it was a clean small break breathing was a extremely painful thing to do

15 Humerus

Fell off my bike 12 feet. Muscle twitches continue. Bone hasn’t started growing after 2 weeks. 11/10 pain

I'm in week 3 and the xray still shows the same, no sign of new bone and the pain just gets worse. I feel an incredible pain I would say 9/10. Uncomfortable to sleep and doing therapy hurts so bad.

Broke my Humerous bone 7 months ago. I could feel it move inside my arm. I couldn’t move my arm for 4-5 months on my own. I was in a sling for 5-6 months. It will take me another month to fully recover

I broke my humerus July 4 2018 and it’s now February 3 2019 and I’m still not healed, I broke it in a four wheeler accident and it was the first bone I broke I also fractured my skull too but I hate not being able to be normal again

16 Heel

The heel is the worst to break. It should be #1

I recently broke my right calcaneus bone into 3 pieces and several chipped pieces. By far the worst pain I've ever felt. I had to have surgery almost immediately. Dr said it's one of the worst bones to break. Dr also said I broke mine in a way they've never seen before and they are not real sure on recovery time. No weight bearing at all for at least 3 months. Could take up to 2 years to heal according to my Dr. Will most likely need another surgery. Cannot do my job anymore. I am currently a nurse. Dr said that's out. Dr said you can never do physical activities the same, you'll never walk the same, and I'll always have troubles with this foot. All I know is this is terrible. I cannot take care of myself hardly at all. I have to have my leg propted for 20 hours a day above my heart. I'm used to caring for everyone else. I've broken my wrist, toes, ribs, my nose twice. Several sprained ankles and arms. This is by FAR the worst break I've ever had. I think this needs to be higher on ...more

I broke my heel four months ago, the pain is unbelievable, I actually almost passed out.I have had six broken ribs at once that I thought was the most painful until this happened. The surgeons both told me the heel is the worst bone you can break. They also told me mine was the worst they had seen, it took 4 hours and 9 plates and 9 screws to repair. The pain is still at 6 after 4 months! Thank god they legalized marijuana in Canada or I wouldn’t be able to sleep or cope!

Four months since shattering. Plate and twelve screw's. Learning to walk again is a challenge. Pain was unbelievable! Surgeon said one of the WORST bones that one can break!

17 Jaw

Mine was an open break. It is very painful and bloody because the head bleeds a lot, but it's the recovery that makes it the worst. Metal plates surgically added. Mouth wired shut for months...imagine all that can happen and it does. Hurts when you shiver, hurts when you hiccup, hurts when you need to yawn, etc.

Plus your stomach wants actual food, but is only getting liquids, so throwing up is a very real possibility...and a painful one as well.

You can't talk, eat, or sometimes breath properly. Wasnt allowed to do anything until I got the wires out because of the possibility of choking or not being able to breath. They make you carry around wire cutters.

I also ripped a nerve so I have limited feeling to one side of my mouth, but trust me I still feel a hell of a lot when I move my jaw a certain way and its been years.

Should be way higher up! I have had broken wrist, ribs, ankle, foot, and by far this is the worst. I am in day 6 and still in pain. Not to mention my mouth getting completely wired shut... this is by far #1 for me!

Not the pain but the recovery is a joke 6 weeks of bull crap liquids. Not to mention having to wait to open your mouth properly and usually you have broken teeth

18 Pelvis

I broke this and basically it can happen that there will be wear and tear on the bones or I don't know how to say it in english. Though the wear and tear will cause me to have more pain the more the time goes on and I will get a new hip earlier than estimated.

While they may not have done so in your case, they most definitely do put screws and plates in pelvis fractures. I have the X-rays to prove it.

Shattered mine in 5 different places. They do not put metal pis and plates in the pelvis. You must lay still and let it heal. Every tiny movement is felt. 3 months and still on a walker.

Complete misery, all my muscles have atrophied from the waist down. Pain wasn't as bad as you would think but, I do have youth on my side. It’s been two months, still using a walker to get around. However, I see some folks saying that metal pins cannot be used for a pelvis break/fracture but indeed I do have one and it has helped put my pelvis back in place.

I was playing soccer and I was about to shoot and someone put the under of his boots in front of the ball so instead of the ball I hit the studs with my first 2 toes (this all happened in about half a second)the pain is excruciating and it doesn't stop it's continuous for about 3 weeks.

I was on track and I stumbled on a hurdle and lost balance then fell on of my toe and they were broken

Hurts like a bitch!

22 Finger

I broke my finger in June 2017 and it still hurts to bend it today in May 2019. At first it feels like a jam, but the following week or two are straight torture from hell. Should be higher in my opinion. More painful than when I broke my wrist and elbow.

I have a permanent crooked finger :/ and it hurt!

Broke my thumb in a motorcycle accident and could touch it for a while after with only mild pain (keep in mind I have a very high pain tolerance). The worst pain came when it was splinted. Most of all it is hard to do almost anything one handed and have to be dependent on someone just to tie my shoes. Pain isn’t to bad but mostly frustrating, most pain comes when I forget and make a sudden movement or bump my bad hand or the splint.

Chipped the tip of my finger from a baseball hitting in head on after being hit. Almost passed out from the pain and it raised the nail off

23 Elbow

An olecranon fracture is an injury to one of the bones of the elbow. The olecranon is the prominent bone that forms the point of the elbow. The bone is actually the end of the ulna, one of the two forearm bones, and it is the attachment of the powerful triceps muscle of the arm. The triceps is the muscle that straightens the elbow, and olecranon fractures can impair an individual's ability to straighten the elbow joint.

Olecranon fractures can occur by either falling directly on the back of the elbow or by the triceps muscle pulling off a fragment of bone from the elbow (a so-called avulsion fracture). Stress fractures are also a possible mechanism of injury to the olecranon, commonly seen in athletes such as baseball pitchers.

I just broke my elbow it hurts so bad 8/10 on pain scale for me

You could die

Elbows along with knees take very long to heal because not being able to move the joint in a cast for a while allows tissue to build up making it very hard to move the joint which also will cause lots of pain after the cast. Your arm will not be able to straighten for months after the cast. Most other bones stay in a cast for a few weeks and then there done, this is not the case for elbows.

24 Nose

Broke my nose, had to get surgery, it was so bad.

It hursts a lot

Completely obliterated my nose off my own knee on trampoline trying to do a double frontflip, most amount of blood I've seen in my life. 7/10 pain scale compared to everything I've felt, (tailbone is one of em, if you've broken your ass you know what I'm talking about)

My friend slammed my face into a door. It hurt like hell as did the surgery. I think the surgery hurt more than the actual break. If you don’t get put to sleep you’re basically re-breaking your nose but you know it’s going to happen.

I broke my right radius (wrist) and my arm looked like an S... it was disgusting but I did not feel much until later at the hospital which was barley a 3/10 pain. the IV they put in my arm was twice as bad?!

Broke mine in nine places didn't hurt that bad. But it was -2 degrees and I was snowboarding, so my adrenaline probably helped me out with the pain.

I just broke my radius. The cast will be on for at least 8 weeks

28 Fibula

I broke my fibula... well my friend broke my fibula and it was horrible. Intense pain for at least an hour and any bumps or jolts hurt. The main problem after that is that you cannot walk which is a major setback and there is a constant aching in your ankle.

I broke my fibula and tibia (shin and calf bones) while riding a bike the bones spit right in half twisting out of place. every movement hurt it felt like jello. I had to wait 3 day in a splint to get it set and casted. Every bump on the road hurt. When I got it set I nearly passed out the doctor said it was one of the top 3 pains known to humans along with going into labor and passing kidney stones. After that it still hurt badly for a day. These bones are vital for walking. I got a full cast off yesterday but the pain continued, every little movement my knee made killed me my leg was so stiff from being in a full cast. I was lucky and got a boot because I healed quickly I could have been in a half cast of r4 weeks then a boot for another, then maybe therapy for 4 weeks. luckily I am getting out in the boot. The bone is still broken but healing well. The pain in the knee will last a few more days

I broke my fibula...a 2 monts ago and,2 moths ago doctors thought I had Tore my (anterior tibial fibula ligament) and the only way to fix that was to strengthen my muscle around it so I was jumping and moving my leg around. I did an mri a month ago due to extreme pains still felt and the results said I had at least a grade 1 growth plate injury and bone bruising to the talus and fibula... a month later which brings me to today I went to emerge at sick kids (cause I’m 12) and I took an x-ray and they said “oh ya you broke your fibula” we’re gonna put you in a cast and well call you soon for your next check up... if your wondering what it feels like to break it it feels like someone just punched you so so so hard then you got a hornet sting where you just got punched and on top of that you feel like you just burned yourself

I have had a broken scapula for 8 months, and have only just now gotten it diagnosed. This break is extremely rare, which is why I imagine it is the lowest on the list. It requires a HUGE amount of force to break a scapula, and normally when one has a broken scapula they also have broken ribs and other severe trauma to the body. I have absolutely no idea how I broke mine, but the pain has been a constant part of my life and has affected me greatly. I am lucky to have a non-displaced break, as a displaces break is extremely painful, but even with mine being non-displaced, it is painful and limits my life activities.

Yep I split my Scapula thrown on the edge of a curb bombing down a steep hill on my bike. Super painful. Breathing..moving..no way to wrap it.

31 Stapes
32 Ulna

Broke my ulna and radius last year on field day. 10/10 pain, and the worst pain I have ever felt. My arm had to be reset because of the deformity. I still have a bend in my arm.

I broke my ulna and my radius and I’ve been out of football for 4 months 😂
