The most painful problems that you face on a day-to-day basis

Hi everyone,
I am really interested in what are the most painful problems that you face on a day-to-day basis as a cyclist.
Thanks,

Here's a start.
What's the stupidest thing a motorist has told you?

Next is what motorists do instead of just yelling at you.

And then there are road conditions, like potholes and rough, layer on layer of patchwork asphalt that make me lose parts or loosen fasteners and joints.

I have chronic spinal issues that cause quite a bit of discomfort and pain. However, my most painful daily challenge is my arthritic left thumb. It affects so much every day. It is one of the reasons I have been trying out different set ups on my bikes. I have found that I really like Velo-Orange Porteur bars, and now have them on my Poprad. I ordered another one, but will have to see which bike it will wind up on. It eliminates most of the pressure put on the thumb when biking with drop bars.

Have you tried talking to an orthopedist for interventions along the lines of Stem Cells, perhaps some type of modern cartilage/spacer injection or other therapy or procedure? Specifically not talking about Cortisone which is just a symptom treatment.

Hot burning lightning bolt pain from left shoulder down to the hand. Hard to sleep. Riding is painful.

i feel you on that one. I have become a bit addicted and have been trying to withdraw a bit. After all, it is self inflicted pain. I believe I need to just say no, and go cold turkey. But, I did just pay my 2 year subscription. Heaven forbid I waste that huge sum of money.

Jumping around will cause my whole home to be painful, especially if I try to get down.

Having to work to make money and dealing with staff incompetence or customer incompetence! Beyond that cycling is pretty great. I guess I wish certain bikes I owned could fit wider tires without changing the set up much and also some how it could be more upright again without changing set up. I just want magic on that front.

Yes, major plus to getting fat and ugly is that you get to wear your shirts.

Same as it was before resuming cycling: getting out of bed in the morning.
