    Not trying to sound bad ass or anything, but since developing gout my concept of pain has been drastically re-evaluated.

    Having been hook-suspended and going through a broken neck and spinal cord injury, my pain threshold and tolerance is pretty altered.

    I've done broken neck and multiple back surgeries, but WTF - "hook-suspended" - self inflicted or some kind of hellraiser abduction? you win regardless!

    in the field we use zero to 10 with zero being normal and 10 being the absolute worst pain you can imagine.

    Having the distal head of my right biceps tendon completely tear in half and the biceps muscle retract up the inside of my arm up to the shoulder while trying not to drop a patient in a hospital was the most intense pain I have ever felt and remained conscious through. I give it a 10 and it stayed at that intensity for about 10 minutes until the ice packs and drugs brought it down to an 8. I did not know that my voice could reach that high an octave. Yes my arm dropped limp to my side and I almost crumpled to the floor and would have except for the drive to not drop a helpless patient to the floor.

    I have always felt pain differently than most folks. What most call pain, I call mild discomfort. What hurts me, kills others.

    the worst pain ive even experienced was a stingray sting.

    ive broken my collarbone biking (in the middle of nowhere, and had to endure a 1 hour ride over a bumpy dirt road where i could hear the broken ends of my bone scratching) and had many other, thanks to my mtb, painful experiences.... but the stingray beat them all, by far.

    The 10-scale seems to have too many points on it. I have a hard time figuring if it is a 7 or an 8. 1 through 5 would be better suited in my mind.
    My dislocated shoulder was the highest on the scale for the longest time period. I had to hike out of a trail, get a ride to he hospital, and then wait forever for pain meds and relocation. It was a few hours of terrible that came and went in waves. I'll never forget my friend coming back into the emergency room and asking me "Since you like pain so much, does this count as maturbation for you?" I laughed, which hurt more.
