Physical. You can take pain killers and get some relief. Emotional pain lingers and most of it never truely goes away.

Emotional pain is much worse than physical pain

I guess it depends on the individual and the context of the pain. I have way more experience with emotional pain for example, lots of ups and downs with my mental health, but as for physical pain I have never even broken a bone before. But I still think I would side with emotional pain anyway. Physical pain can often (I know there are life-threatening injuries in life) be a far more straightforward ordeal that can be treated and goes away in time. Emotional pain on the other hand can often be hard to even describe to another human and can continue to linger forever. You could simply be triggered by an emotional memory and it will all come flooding back. Once physical pain is gone (again, referring to common stuff that can be treated) it's gone and bad memories related to it won't make that injury come back. Emotional pain really deserves the kind of empathy that physical pain gets I think. It can really harm your self-esteem and mental health so easily.

I would say physical. But perhaps that's because I have more experience dealing with the other kind.

I feel like time can heal, and you can medicate away and actively take steps to come out on top of or grapple with emotional pain the way you can't always with physical pain. Physical agony and the associated panic and nausea are not pleasant.

I would say physical pain from experience. Although emotional pain is a bitch when it does happen.

Emotional as its usually deeper and longer lasting and has no time frame.

Physical (not always) has a time frame and drugs (prescription) can reduce the pain or alleviate it for periods.

can we do a What's worse - a giraffe or raspberry jelly poll?

Emotional pain is "worse" for me. There are times when certain physical pain seems minor and insignificant in "comparison". At least in the long term. But then again, I don't remember ever having absolutely horrible physical pain (tbh I do feel as if I'm about to pass out every time I bump my head off my kіtchen cupboard though... that thing would CUT YA!). The "good" thing about emotional pain though, is that, at least in theory, you can rise from it and develop some sort of emotional insight into how to deal with this "abstract" kind of pain in the future. It really can feel bloody awful though... And like others mentioned, it can stay with you or simmer below the surface for ages.
