What do you think is worse? Emotional pain or physical pain? Obviously I know there are extremes in both but generally speaking, which is worse? Would you rather experience heartbreak or a broken leg?

I've had kidney stones, major spinal surgery and a broken leg to name a few, and I would gladly take kidney stones again over mental pain, with physical pain it's temporary and you get stronger after experience extreme pain, but mental pain can cause years of torment and can break you, I've experienced both and trust me physical pain is nothing.2

I think emotional pain is generally worse. A broken leg, arm, or nose would be preferable over heartbreak or the death of someone close to me (like a family member or friend). Physical pain is usually only temporary, while emotional pain can linger for years and years, and destroy your state of mind.
(I'd probably choose heartbreak over losing a limb or developing some painful disability, though... Unless I literally thought the guy was my soulmate. I guess like with most things, my answer is "It depends," haha.)2
