Finally got into an ENT after yelling at my doctor to stop with the damn antibiotics and check me in. Turns out I have a giant abscess in my skull, in the middle ear and my eardrum is blown out. They busted it open and drained it 3 weeks ago, which was bad enough, but this last one...

Dude cauterized the inside of my ear. It smelled like burning doghair and eggs spilled on the grill... and I was numb for the procedure, but when the numbing wore off, it felt like somebody stuck a red hot poker in my ear. Which they did... I then had a 20 hour headache... Still getting black chunks out too... Only get to do it 3 or 4 more times!
The ear is very sensitive. I was working on my truck and had a fuel line leak, laying on the ground under the truck and ::drip:: a single drop of unleaded falls right into my ear hole. The pain was EPIC and long lasting.

step on a tiny piece of glass, it hurt, it annoying, you can't walk and for as long as it in your foot it ain't gonna heal. even just a single glass particle is enough.

Screw around with your multi-tool long enough and the pivot point on the pliers will pinch you. Plier bite is really just a synonym for "blood blister".

Ceramic shards in your feet. Ow. Made even worse when you don't have your glasses on, and have to walk/hop to get them.
