Tom Hadfield suffered four fractured ribs and a punctured lung during the San Fermin festival in Pamplona on Tuesday morning.
Speaking from his bed in Hospital De Navarro in the city, Mr Hadfield said: "I've never experienced pain like this before. It's agony.
"I think a few of them trampled me. It's a miracle they didn't crush my skull or break my back.''
Mr Hadfield, who is originally from Dunmow but now lives and works in Nottingham, added: "Afterwards I got up and carried on running for a bit. Then I started to get dizzy and found somewhere safe to keel over.
"Next thing I know I'm vomiting blood on the street and there is a big crowd around me. Then I passed out and woke up in the ambulance. Pretty scary. I thought I was paralysed.''
