how painful is a broken arm usually?

Painful: Broken bones don't say i think i'm broke, they say i'm broke. Most people feel silly when they say i think i broke a bone when they finally break a bone, as the difference is significant. Pain interpretation is very individualized though. Some have high pain thresholds and some have very low thresholds.

Depends: It all depends upon the injury, degree of injury and location.
