  • You asked for more, so we found more, get ready for the next iteration of the most painful

  • things a human can experience.

  • This is our fifth video in the compilation, and we dove into the deepest depths of pain

  • to top our previous four videos.

  • Now sit back, get ready, and try to relax as we tell you even more painful things a

  • human can experience.

  • The first thing on our list is for the ladies out there.

  • It is a condition called endometriosis.

  • It has been said to be just as painful, if not more painful, than childbirth.

  • This is probably because endometriosis has to do with the same organs as childbirth.

  • The condition occurs when tissue that is similar to the uterine lining grows outside of the

  • female reproductive organs.

  • You can think of it like new tissue being grown close to, but not exactly, where it's

  • supposed to be.

  • This can cause all kinds of problems, and is almost always accompanied by excruciating

  • pain.

  • The rogue pelvic tissue starts to affect the ovaries, fallopian tubes, and the uterus itself

  • causing massive discomfort.

  • When the pelvic tissue begins growing in the wrong places it can cause cysts and scar tissue

  • to form.

  • But the real discomfort occurs at adhesions.

  • Adhesions are scar tissue that binds two or more organs together that are not supposed

  • to be connected.

  • It is kind of like staples made of scar tissue.

  • If the adhesion is pulled apart in the wrong way the scar tissue is tornor in this analogy,

  • the staples are ripped out of your organs.

  • The pain and discomfort resulting from endometriosis can intensify during the menstrual period.

  • So, if cramps and shooting pains weren't enough during this time of month, endometriosis

  • makes everything even more painful.

  • Also, sex can cause women who have endometriosis extreme pain as the penis causes irritation

  • to the pelvic skin forming outside the reproductive organs.

  • In order to combat endometriosis a doctor can provide pain medication and hormone therapies.

  • But oftentimes the pain is too intense, and the tissue needs to be surgically removed.

  • If you're a male, you are probably relieved to know that you don't need to worry about

  • the intense pain caused by endometriosis.

  • However, if you are a male, you definitely should worry about this next pain.

  • The next painful experience can affect men and women, but it is much more excruciating

  • in men.

  • Pudendal neuralgia is a severe pain around the gluteus maximus, or in more common terms—a

  • pain in the ass.

  • This can happen from a bad fall or from high impact trauma.

  • The reason pudendal neuralgia is so painful in men is because it also affects the penis.

  • Pudendal neuralgia can cause intense pain in both the penis and scrotum.

  • In fact, a report in the Journal of the Canadian Chiropractic Association described pudendal

  • neuralgia as aninsidious constant penis pain.”

  • That is not something you want to hear about a medical condition that happens in the genitalia.

  • The pudendal nerve runs from the back of the pelvis and travels just past the base of the

  • penis or vagina, eventually branching off into other nerves.

  • It sends signals from the brain to the genitalia, sphincter, and other muscles in the area.

  • When this nerve is damaged it can cause pain signals to radiate throughout the region.

  • As mentioned before this pain can be constant.

  • If you've ever tweaked a nerve and been in immense pain until you massage it out,

  • you can imagine how terrible that would feel in the lower back, pelvic, and genitalia regions

  • of the body; especially if it was never ending.

  • For someone who has pudendal neuralgia they may feel a sharp burning in the perineum,

  • which is the area between the genitals and the anus.

  • For males it may feel like pins and needles being stuck into your penis and scrotum.

  • All of these sensations could be exacerbated by sitting down, so you could become physically

  • exhausted as you try to remain standing to mitigate the pain.

  • It also goes without saying that a male suffering from pudendal neuralgia would feel pain during

  • sex, or even if he gets an erection, so make sure to remain calm and turned off if you

  • are ever diagnosed with pudendal neuralgia.

  • The final medical condition we will look at makes the first two seem like a walk in the

  • park.

  • This next painful experience is enough to drive you to the point of insanity.

  • Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition that can literally cause pain in every muscle and bone

  • of the body.

  • The disease itself intensifies pain signals being sent throughout the nervous system,

  • so it's almost like a feedback loop of pain.

  • The pain of fibromyalgia is so terrible and constant that it normally keeps people with

  • the disease from sleeping, which leads to fatigue as well.

  • It is important to note that the discomfort associated with fibromyalgia isn't just

  • in one location, or for a short period of time.

  • This is a pain that is constant and everywhere.

  • We have all probably experienced some pretty painful things like stepping on a Lego or

  • getting a stung by a bee.

  • Now imagine that pain constantly running throughout your body, that is what it can be like to

  • have fibromyalgia.

  • The pain itself might not be as intense as some others, but the consistency and the distribution

  • is enough to drive anyone crazy.

  • When you think of animals that can cause you pain, you're probably not thinking about

  • this next one.

  • Fun fact, it is one of only two types of mammals that lays eggs!

  • The platypus inhabits the continent of Australia, and although there are a lot of different

  • animals that can cause you massive amounts of pain there, you probably wouldn't think

  • the funny looking platypus would be one of them.

  • Male platypus have an ankle spur on their hind legs, which contain a toxic venom.

  • This barb and venom combination can cause massive amounts of discomfort.

  • Researchers who have been unlucky enough to be stung by a platypus claim the pain is excruciating

  • and causes bad swelling in the affected area.

  • To be fair, platypus don't normally sting humans unless they are provoked or being harmed

  • in some way.

  • In fact, the spur and venom is actually used when fighting other males for the right to

  • mate.

  • The idea is if the platypus can stab its rival they will be incapacitated.

  • When the rival platypus is injected with venom during a fight, it will be unable to move

  • and the first male will be able to breed peacefully with the female platypus.

  • The venom eventually wears off and the stung platypus recovers.

  • However, if a human is stung by the spur on a platypus, things can go a little differently.

  • First things first, the most painful time to be stung by a platypus is during mating

  • season, because this is when the platypus produces the most venom.

  • So, if you find yourself in Australia during platypus mating season, stay as far away from

  • them as possible.

  • But what does it feel like to be stung by a platypus?

  • In a word: painful.

  • There have been no recorded human fatalities from platypus stings, however, after being

  • stung by the animal you may wish you were dead.

  • One of the worst parts is that the spurs on platypus are not meant to come out easily.

  • This means if you are stung the barb will stay inside you, injecting painful venom into

  • your body until it is manually removed.

  • If the initial sting wasn't enough you will probably take a good size chunk of skin and

  • muscle off when yanking the spur out of your body.

  • In reality researchers say you probably wouldn't be able to remove the spur yourself though.

  • You'd be too distracted by theimmediate, sustained, and devastatingpain of the

  • platypus venom.

  • Doctors in Australia would need to administer local anesthesia to make the pain subside,

  • since not even morphine is powerful enough to stop the pain of a platypus sting.

  • And if you are as unlucky as one 57-year-old victim, the area that was stung could stay

  • hypersensitive to pain for three months after the initial encounter.

  • Needless to say, being stung by a platypus would be one of the most painful and unpleasant

  • experiences anyone could go through.

  • Sticking with the stinging theme, this next insect has the most painful sting second only

  • to the bullet ant.

  • Unfortunately, it is found on every continent in the world except for Europe and Antarctica.

  • Being stung by a wasp hurts, but there is no wasp sting more painful than that of the

  • tarantula hawk wasp.

  • Even the name of the creature sounds painful and scary.

  • These wasps are huge.

  • The name itself comes from their favorite activity of hunting tarantulas, so you know

  • that they are going to need to be pretty big and pack a deadly sting.

  • The large stinger, combined with the venom the tarantula hawk wasp creates, is the perfect

  • one two punch of pain.

  • If you were ever stung by a tarantula hawk wasp you would instantly regret it.

  • The stinger would cause an initial prick of pain.

  • Then as the venom was injected into your bloodstream, the real agony begins.

  • One researcher who was stung by the tarantula hawk wasp recounted the experience as being:

  • immediate, excruciating, unrelenting pain that simply shuts down one's ability to do

  • anything, except scream.”

  • The pain lasts for about five minutes, but it would be the most painful five minutes

  • of your life.

  • And if the pain associated with the sting wasn't bad enough, tarantula hawk wasps

  • lay their eggs inside of tarantulas after they kill them.

  • So, if you were an incredibly unlucky human, you may be the surrogate mother for dozens

  • of tiny tarantula hawk wasp babies.

  • This has never happened before, but it is definitely the stuff of nightmares.

  • Our final, and hottest, most painful experience comes from eating.

  • You may enjoy spicy things, but this next pepper is so hot that it can cause massive

  • amounts of pain when consumed.

  • One of the most painful things a human can experience is eating a Carolina reaper pepper.

  • It is the hottest chili pepper on the planet, and it can cause some serious damage.

  • The Carolina reaper is a cross between a ghost chili and a habañero.

  • The way spice is measured in terms of peppers is using the Scoville heat unit.

  • On this scale a jalapeño has a Scoville rating of 5,000, a habañero has a rating of 200,000,

  • a ghost chili rates at around 1 million, and the Carolina reaper has a rating of 2,200,000

  • SHUs.

  • So if you think a habañero pepper is hot, the Carolina reaper is eleven times more spicy.

  • People who have eaten the Carolina reaper have experienced excruciating pain.

  • From the first bite the heat-pain receptors of the mouth go crazy.

  • The body reacts as if it were under attack by dumping chemicals into the bloodstream

  • to increase blood flow and cause inflammation to protect itself.

  • As the juices go down your throat it feels like your esophagus is on fire.

  • The pain is so intense that your body temperature starts increasing.

  • The burning sensation follows the path the pepper takes through your body.

  • And when we say that the pain follows the pepper, we mean all of the way through your

  • body.

  • Many people end up vomiting after eating the Carolina reaper.

  • This is normally an involuntary reaction caused by the brain trying to rid the body of whatever

  • harmful substance is causing it so much pain.

  • However, if the pepper is not ejected this way, and makes it all the way through your

  • digestive system, it will burn once it comes out the back end.

  • The extreme burn associated with the Carolina reaper will literally run through your body

  • like a wildfire.

  • The pain of having a burning digestive tract is one we recommend you stay clear of.

  • Everyone is different, and the ability to tolerate pain varies from person to person.

  • However, on average, the experiences on this list would cause anyone extreme discomfort

  • and agony.
