Aaaaand today I learned that if I take a MRI I have to remember to take out my nipple piercings.
Ouch, I've caught mine on a loofah in the shower...and that's bloody painful. I can only imagine what you're going through. Hopefully your nip nop heals up quick :)
Wow... I can't imagine that pain, and how can you concentrate in writing this after that.
Most facilities have two types of "Emergency Stop" buttons, wasn't there any? I hope you get better.
Why do people get their nipples pierced??? I'm not against it or anything but It just seems like it'd hurt more than it's worth.
When you really think about it, why should impaling your flesh in only one specific location be considered normal and acceptable, while impaling your flesh anywhere else on your body is considered weird and deviant? If you have no problems with ear lobe piercing, logically you should have no problems with any other body piercing.
My cartilage on my ear easily hurt more than my breasts, but men have more nerve endings there than women (breastfeeding and all). For SOME people it increases sensation when they're touched. For SOME people, it's a good way to reverse inverted nipples. A lot of women see better milk flow after having their nipples pierced. Some do it for their partner. Some people do it for themselves, whether because they think it's pretty or to give them more confidence in their body, whether someone else is seeing it or not. Nose piercings hurt WAY worse. I'm covered in piercings and my nipples were definitely one of the least painful
If pierced correctly it shouldn't hurt all that bad. The problem is that a lot of pierced don't adjust for the specific person's body and often -- especially on men -- end up piercing too deep into the flesh. That's why some people say that theirs took forever to heal and may or may not still have problems with them in the long run. Mine barely hurt at all and took a very short time to heal.
100 - I don't think it depends on if it was properly pierced. Of course that matters but that doesn't stop the pain. It would obviously hurt more if done wrong but you can't say that there's hardly any pain if done properly. Everyone has different pain levels. I've never heard of the whole "too deep" thing.
isnt that among the first things you do when you work near an MRI machine? if i was being assigned, there, i would be triple checking myself for anything metallic. and then wondering if my own head counts as metallic. its pretty dense. :P
