12 Worst Pains Humans Can Experience

What are the top 12 worst pains for a human to feel? Many of People answering to these questions have not done sufficient study. That’s why they are giving inappropriate answers. Let me give my list according to research.

12- Gout

Basically an acute and intense onset of arthritis, gout is not to be messed with. Once known as the “rich man’s disease” because a wealthy diet was one of the causes, gout is now known to be a result of too much uric acid in the blood.

That can form microscopic crystals that collect in the body’s extremities. Symptoms include severe pain, as well as swollen, red, and tender joints, most often concentrated in the hands and feet.

11- Bear Attacks

It doesn’t take a genius to realize that bears are not animals to be trifled with. One of the largest species, the polar bear, weighing up to nearly a thousand pounds.

These incredible animals could easily maul a human in only a matter of seconds. That said, only about 3 humans in the U.S. and Canada die from bear attacks each year, compared to the roughly 40 to 50 lightning strike-related fatalities per year in the U.S. alone.

This is a condition induced by the sting of the Irukandji jellyfish, found off the coast of Australia. Besides being incredibly painful, an unusual effect of the jellyfish’s venom is an intense feeling of impending doom.

10- Irukandji Syndrome

It’s so profound, in fact, that some patients even beg their doctor to just kill them and get it over with. The symptoms can often take several weeks to recede, even with proper medical attention.

9- Gonadal Torsion

Occurring in either the testes or the ovaries, torsion typically involves twisting of the gonads (reproductive organs).

When that happens, the blood supply can be restricted. It’s just as painful as it sounds and often requires surgery to repair.

8- Kidney Stones

Kidney stones are hard deposits of minerals that can become lodged inside of the kidneys. This painful condition often results in fever symptoms, vomiting, and bloody urine.

The only to remove them short of a surgery is to pass them through your urinary tract, which sounds bad before realizing that stones can range anywhere from a few millimeters to several inches in size.

7- Second Degree Burns

Despite being ultimately less harmful than third or fourth-degree burns, second-degree burns are often the most painful type of burn.

This is because third and fourth degree burns often damage nerve endings, cutting off the brain’s ability to sense feeling in the burned area. Second degree burns, on the other hand, only burn away only the top layer of skin, making for a truly excruciating experience.

6- Dercum’s Disease

Dercum’s disease makes even the simplest of daily tasks, such as putting on clothing or taking a shower, excruciatingly painful.

This is due to the numerous lipomas (painful growths of fatty tissue) that spread across the patient’s body, making it extremely sensitive to touch and temperature. Although an exact cause is unknown, Dercum’s Disease is thought to be a genetic autoimmune disorder, which causes the body to improperly break down fats.

5- Complex Regional Pain Syndrome

This is a nasty disease that causes your body’s pain receptors to go haywire. It results in intense swelling and pain, often on the arms, hands, or feet.

The pain tends to get worse over time and, though a cure has yet to be found, scientists have discovered a link between the onset of the disease and heavy smoking; in case you needed another reason to quit.

4- Cluster Headaches

Unlike migraines or tension headaches, cluster headaches occur almost directly behind the eyeball. They typically affect a person for a period of several weeks at a time, often coming at night.

With the chronic nature of the attacks and the unbearable pain they cause, many people also refer to them as “suicide headaches,” due to sufferers often wishing they could end their lives just to escape from the excruciating pain.

3- Penile Fracture

Every guy knows what this is, and it hurts just as much as you think it does. That’s about all we have to say about that. Every man will agree, the penile fracture is one of the most painful experiences!

2- Postdural Puncture Headache

Also known as a spinal headache, this is one of the worst head pains a human can experience. These headaches affecting your meninges, which are the membranes that encapsulate your brain and spinal cord.

They are some of the most sensitive parts of your anatomy, and they are a common side effect of spinal anesthesia. Common symptoms are hearing loss, vertigo, nausea, dizziness, and extreme pain that is described as akin to being seared by hot metal.

1- Emotional Pain

From depression to PTSD, repeated studies have found that emotional trauma triggers the same parts of the brain as physical pain.

Interestingly, in some cases, it can be just as excruciating as any severe injury. As surprising as it might seem, psychological distress is one of the worst th
