My only serious injury was in Grade 3, when I dislocated by left arm. Other than that, nothing much has happened.

What about you?

And be sensible. It has to be real, and I don't want any jackassery comments that would be stupid and jeopardize this thread.

Ok, this is no joke, when I was like 9 or 10, it was like 3 am, and I woke up and there was this pain in my gut, around my kidney's. At first I thought it was gas, but it didn't pass. Then I thought it was a cramp, so i started shifting positions to make it go away, but that didn't work either. So I just waited for like an hour or so, and it only got worse. I even tried going to the bathroom. So I woke up my mom and told her my stomach area was hurting really bad. So she took me to the emergency room. Turns out, one of my testies hadn't dropped yet and it twisted. So I had to get surgery. :pwnd:
True Story.

This other time when I was 8, I stepped too close to a swing set and got a chunk of my neck kicked out by some kid. That was the last time I ever cried, not even when I got dumped. :thumbsup:

Woah! That's gotta hurt! And compared to my dislocated shoulder, it seems like hell!

By the way, what do you mean your testis dropped and twisted? Never really heard of it. What was it?

Only one of them didn't drop, and it just twisted.

It's hard to compare pain.

One contender would be the toothache I got after cracking a tooth top to bottom by grinding my teeth too hard as a consequence of some really dumb short-sighted decisions by some of the senior technical guys at work.

The other would be the night I spent at age 11 with a broken arm-- I'd been rollerskating, and a little girl pulled out in front of me on her trike, and I fell over trying to avoid her. I went home and told my parents I'd broken my arm, and they were all "you've only sprained it." So it was the next morning I got taken to casualty and got a cast put on.

I just remembered another one; it was in my old house, where I had to share my room with my brother. It was a bunk bed, and I was on the top bunk. One time, when I was sleeping, I unknowingly rolled over, and the restrictor which was in place couldn't hold my weight, so I rolled and slammed onto the floor. Luckily, I was still asleep and I didn't feel any pain. But when I woke up on the floor, my head was bruised severely, due to the carpet. My arm was also grazed considerably.

@Tines: Yes, it is pretty hard to compare pain. One time I got burnt from the oven my hand was like on fire, and I didn't know which one was more painful, my arm dislocating or the burn.

Pain is weird.

I once strained a muscle in my back and had to see a doctor. He gave me an injection and handed me a weeks supply of painkillers.
Another time I hit my hand on a concrete post (don't ask how) and sprained it as a consequence. Well - I just kept going as usual including going to judo training, but after 2 weeks my hand wasn't back to normal so I went to the doctor. It turned out that I had broken a bone and not sprained my hand.

That was stupid of them. I can imagine how that must've been... >_<

In any case, I've been as stupid. I twisted my ankle one day and it hurt like hell, but I limped around a lot. The pain was bad for a few days and then it came down to a small ache that lasted for months, and then it went off. I don't know if I fractured anything- I guess I didn't, and it stopped hurting anyway.

I used to get these instances where the muscles in my calves used to knot up. It happened a lot last year, and I don't know why. When they suddenly seized up (Normally when I was asleep, or dozing with my feet stretched out) the pain used to be unbearable. I had to slap my calves in an effort to reduce the pain- with little effect.

Broke my left arm when I was nine months. The story I was told went, I decided to show my parents I knew how to walk by going up and down the stairs. I broke my arm going down them apparently. No one figured it out till the next day though when my mom noticed I wasn't pounding on things as hard as I normally did.

Then when I was 5 I broke my right arm jumping off my deck. Then rebroke it a week before the cast was going to come off playing soccer. I tripped and smacked my arm up against the goal post.

Other soccer injuries were when I got kicked in the ankle rather hard. That fucked it up pretty good from what I remember. And I grew up in the 80's so the treatment was still "walk it off". (that hurt a lot) None of that pussy babying injuries crap the doctors do now days. I also twisted my knee a bunch of times playing soccer leading to a case of loose knee. But that only hurt for a minute or so and then I could get back up on it and play again. Next day was a challengethough as it always stiffened up pretty bad.

Yep, quite the same thing I did. Walked it off.

I got this MASSIVE gash on the side of my forehead and had get six or seven stitches for it, and if I had gotten hit just right I could have died btw

and then there was this time when I was 11 or 12 when I got testicular torsion and THAT HURT LIKE HELL :argh:

This hasn't happened to me, but when I was 6 years old, I was playing with my then 12 year old sister. What happened was that we were playing a water gun battle, and I accidentally squirted at her :private parts:. She was furious, and she looked like she was going to kill me. So, in retaliation of being killed, I found a nearby scissor on the bench, and...on instinct, threw it at her forehead. She bled like hell, and cried a lot. She had to get several stitches due to the tip of the blade struck her upper forehead, creating a significantly sized cut.

That was years ago, and if I had knew better, it is illegal to murder or kill someone. And if knew that, my sister would've just given my a little lecture about...things.

DUDE THAT'S WHAT HAPPENED TO ME!!!! Except I hadn't dropped yet. :nod:

Oh, when I was 3, I was at my babysitters house (Some old lady who babysits like 10 kids at once) and we were outside playing. Everyone says I was surfing on the wagon, but I wasn't, I was standing on my knees while in it. And the kid who was pulling the wagon turned really sharply, and I fell out and cracked my forehead. I don't remember much after that, but then I was in the emergency room while they were sowing my up. Apparently they couldn't put me out because I wouldn't stay still because I was balling so much. So they help me down and put in my stitches. That is probably the only reason I still remember that bitch of a babysitter. :sucker:

I'm sure all men have been through this, and they find that they don't want it to happen to them again. I was 10, and I was riding my bike down a considerably steep hill, when my brakes failed. I estimated I was going at approximately 30+ kph, and I was instinctively terrified, and what I saw was a...1 m pole right in front of me. Although I had directional control with my front wheel, I was too terrified to move a muscle, because if I did, I thought the bike would topple over, and I'd die from head injuries. Of course, after hearing all those warnings about wearing your helmet while on your bike, I wore my helmet at all times on my bike.

Because I didn't move, the bike obviously accelerated, and 5 seconds later...
BANG!

I felt my body jump up due to the enormous impact and shockwave, and the bike was still upright, and it didn't topple over, and I landed...scrotum first. Then my ass. Then I felt this tingling sensation in my stomach area. After the bike toppled over, I was pinned down by the bike, and I was holding my groin area. My testicles had a sensation that was not quite pain, but not quite itching. Then when I got up, it didn't hurt anymore, but my lower stomach area was still tingling, and once I tried to sit on the seat of the bike again, my testicles hurt like HELL!

Afterwards, I realised I didn't have any particular injuries, and later that night, my testicles still had that sensation. I didn't tell my parents, due to humiliation.

I woke up, and, strangely, my testicles didn't have that sensation anymore, and my stomach was fine. I tried getting on the bike again, and it was like normal all of a sudden. I just noticed that my testicles just sustained a little shock. :nod:
