A question many ask but few dare to answer. Would it hurt more to break a rib or have a hernia, is it worse to have appendicitis or punctured lung? Or the age old: Is it more painful to have a baby or be kicked in the balls?

Amongst the NHS’s list of conditions that can cause the most notoriously severe pains are arthritis, kidney stones and broken bones. Less well known pain-inducing aliments include trigeminal neuralgia- often described as feeling like an electric shock is shooting through your face.

The NHS also names frozen shoulder as one of the worst to suffer. This is where the joint becomes so tight and stiff that it’s almost impossible to even raise your arm. The condition can last for several years if left untreated.

Endometriosis also sounds excruciating and effects one in ten women in the UK. The gynaecological condition is where cells like those in the womb’s lining are found elsewhere in the body and induce severe pains.

Illnesses more historically common also feature. Our grandparents may well have been unlucky enough to experience shingles which are characterised by blisters or rashes on the body that create painful burning sensations. At times these can be so strong that the sufferer experiences stabbing pains when someone brushes lightly against the affected area.
