The degree of pain is always difficult to assess, each person feels it differently. However, the Canadian University of McGill has managed to establish a pain scale and define the most difficult pain to bear.
You’ve probably already been asked to rate your pain on a scale of 1 to 10. This is called the visual analog scale (VAS). Since pain is unique to everyone, an 8 out of 10 for two people will not necessarily have the same degree of pain. That is why it is difficult to know which pathology is the most painful. That is why Montreal’s McGill University has developed a questionnaire so that patients can establish a ranking of the worst pain. Here are the 10 most intense pains listed by the experts.
10. Trigeminal Neuralgia
This disease, also “tic douloureux”, is manifested by sudden and unexpected crises of intense pain located in one part of the face, between the eyelids and the upper lip, causing involuntary contractions causing sensations of brief and intense electric shocks that can be repeated in burst. This disease affects approximately one in 5,000 people and is more common in women over the age of 50.
We all know that horrible pain caused by a migraine. If the intensity of a migraine is not always the same, it causes intense pain in the middle of the skull and very often an intolerance to noise or light, and there is not much to do but wait for the pain to pass. In addition, migraine has a strong impact on quality of life.
8. Renal colic
Renal colic causes intense pain in the lumbar and abdominal region, which occurs on one side only. This pain is due to increased pressure in the urinary tract and kidney. Due to the presence of an obstacle in the urinary tract, and no position allows pain relief.
The causes of this disease are still poorly understood, but it is known to cause diffuse and persistent pain in both the joints and muscles, although no injury or inflammation is detected. In addition to pressure sensitivity, these pains are associated with other symptoms such as severe fatigue or sleep disturbances.
6. Rheumatoid arthritis
Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic autoimmune inflammatory disease, in which the immune system attacks the membrane of the joints which swells and produces inflammatory enzymes. Often confused with osteoarthritis, this disease damages tendons, cartilage, and bone in particular, and symptoms occur most often late at night and in the morning.
5. Crohn’s disease
Crohn’s disease is a chronic inflammation that can affect the walls of the entire digestive tract, from the mouth to the anus. This disease would give rise to attacks of pain similar to an attack of appendicitis and the causes can be genetic or environmental.
4. Finger amputation
Being the finger the part of the body where we have more nerve, its amputation without anesthesia causes a very intense pain. A replanted finger will systematically have sequelae such as stiffness, cold pain, or change in sensitivity.
Bringing a child into the world is far from being a piece of cake. In addition to being long, deliveries are often very painful. They are considered one of the worst pains that exist, due to the intense contractions that the body can suffer for several days. The contractions can radiate throughout the stomach, kidneys, pelvis, and sometimes even the legs. It would seem that a man cannot imagine how painful this is, although many women feel that the pain is similar to that of an acute form of kidney stone.
2. Ant bite
Surprising as it may seem, the sting of an ant takes second place in this ranking. Obviously it is not an ant as we can find everywhere around us, but an ant To put Clavata, It lives in the tropical forests of Central and South America. Its venom releases a very painful neurotoxic venom that causes intense burning sensations that spread throughout the affected limb, causing uncontrolled muscle contractions for several hours.
1. Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS)
CRPS is a rare and little-known disease considered the worst pain in the world. This syndrome most often occurs after physical trauma, such as a fracture or even a sprain, leading to nerve dysfunction. The patient then feels stabbing pain with tenderness, swelling, limited range of motion, or even tremors. A crisis can last several months and there is still no treatment for this syndrome.
