(ORDO NEWS) — It seems that life without pain is a dream, but in reality it brings many difficulties. Only a few thousand cases of this disease have been recorded in the world. It is believed that the small number of such people is due to the fact that they rarely live to adulthood.
Experts note that the feeling of pain plays an important physiological role. It is it that protects a person from the dangers that the world around him is fraught with.
Among such people, the percentage of fractures and accidents associated with burns is very high. This is due to the fact that such people do not have warning signs and accompanying symptoms.
For example, when the appendix becomes inflamed, the person experiences pain and fever. In people who are not in pain, this simple condition can develop into a serious abdominal infection.
The first cases of congenital insensitivity to pain are reported to have been reported in the 1930s. After that, scientists were able to identify a mutation in the genes that blocks the feeling of pain in humans.
A software developer in the southern French city of Toulouse had a similar story. Abela revealed that her daughters are now 12 and 13 years old. During the year they spend about three months in hospitals.
Abela first thought something was wrong when her daughter began to learn to walk and leave bloody footprints behind her. However, nothing bothered her.
Abela says that this disease caused her eldest daughter to lose the first joints of all her fingers. She also had to have her toe amputated, and due to repeated knee injuries, she can only get around with the help of crutches.
The story of Abeli’s daughter only proves that it is almost impossible to live without feeling pain.
