I stubbed my foot on a really heavy wooden bench. I'm pretty sturdy, I was moving at speed and gave it a good hard smack. The pain felled me. sad
And do you know what can be done for broken and stubbed toes?
Fuck all.

It is easily the most painful and shocking thing ever. Fact.

I take it you haven't given birth.

Or passed a kidney stone.

Ya big wuss.

Oh yes! I badly bruised my toe by stubbing it then five weeks later stubbed same toe again and broke it. That was about ten weeks ago and it still hurts (tho can walk normally at last, not braved heels yet). You have my sympathy smile

No, most painful thing in the world is standing on an upturned plug. Hideous!

Oh and I have given birth twice, toe hurt more (initial five mins post stub) :D

I've never stubbed my toe really hard, but I have had something very heavy fall on my toe and the pain rendered me unable to make a sound. Excruciating. The nail came off my big toe afterwards.

Wisiplass I have indeed given birth, three times, including twice in the same day! But they were all sunroof jobs so maybe I got off lightly?!
And gallstones don't hurt like a surprise toe stub! One of my toes is deep purple.

Standing on an upturned plug so hard that it breaks the skin is a real eye-waterer! Trumps toe-stubbing I think.

No, accidentally (obviously!) ramming a pencil up your nose sharpened end first is the most painful thing imaginable. I really passed out from the sheer shock of it! And I still have no idea how I managed it...

Jackiemagazine Mon 12-Jan-15 14:05:50

Gruntfuttock that sounds horrid, you poor thing!

canweseethebunnies Mon 12-Jan-15 14:06:01

X post glitter!

"including twice in the same day!"

Well that's just showing off!

Jackiemagazine Mon 12-Jan-15 14:06:24

I bet this is a from of torture used by the Spanish Inquisition. Blindfolded people and told them to run around a room full of coffee tables.

Are you serious or just plain bored and have nothing better to do.
I'll swop your stubbed toe for my time on the chiropractors couch last Thursday realigning my pelvis.
Or maybe my best friends pain for two years that resulted in an 11 hr operation to put everything right. And after that she had 2 heart attacts.

passing gallstones beats it. sorry

Yep it really hurts! But for some reason people want to giggle when other people stub their toe, I don't know why. It just seems such a minor injury, when actually it's so painful.

squoosh Mon 12-Jan-15 14:07:59

Ah Finger give her a break, she's still in a fug of toe stubbing pain.

ouryve Mon 12-Jan-15 14:08:48

I htought so, until I developed a rather sensitive spot under the fingernail of my left ring finger. My ulnar nerve is extremely sensitive, anyhow, for various reasons (my elbow is quite inflamed to the point I can no longer straighten it), but I only have to touch this fingernail in a certain way to experience pain so bad that I often either cry or black out. I have no idea how it's come about, but shit, it hurts!

Jackiemagazine Mon 12-Jan-15 14:09:33

Ouryve that's made me clench.

wishmiplass Mon 12-Jan-15 14:12:43

I guess the surprise is the thing... you don't have time to gird your loins. Small difference that makes when trying to shit out a fridge though!

I hope your toe gets better soon. xx

Jesus Christ floggingmolly I'm cringing at that!!!
