There was actually a House MD episode about a patient with it; pretty fun episode since the doctors couldn't figure out what was wrong with her directly since she can't tell them "where it hurts".

It is a sad problem, like the person above me said she won't be able to tell the doctor if she feels pain. Meaning a lot of serious diseases or conditions could happen and she wouldn't know until she died or something terrible happened. Plus she wouldn't be able to tell how close her hand was to fire because she wouldn't sense the heat coming off of it. So many important survival mechanisms that tell us when it's dangerous and she doesn't have them. She could brake her leg and continue walking on it since she doesn't feel the pain that tells her not to walk. There's so much damage she can end up doing without knowing. So it is indeed a curse, sure we all have times we wish we didn't have pain. But if you lived completely without pain it'd be more dangerous.

Pain is needed for us to be aware when we are fully pushing our body to the limits..

She could freeze to death and not feel it, or burn to death and not feel it.

So it definitely is a curse.

Well , she could be dying and not know it .

There was an episode in House with a girl with this condition . It`s one of the worst things to have .
Someone always has to check her temperature and check every inch of her to make sure there`s no
injury . It`s a lot of work .

How lucky. It doesn't sound like a curse to me. >_<

...So if she got a cut, she wouldn't notice until it got infected, but then it'd be too late because the infection turned into a disease? What? [I've got no idea what I'm talking about.] o_O

Wow, I wish I couldn't feel pain.
Physically and emotionally.

i wish i had CIPA. and yeah ok so you wouldn't know if you got ill or hurt, but if you had a health check like every week or something you'd be fine.right?

A palm face to all those of you that think it is a good thing.


You have pain for a reason.


Say you touch something that is very hot. Hey, you feel no pain, so your hand is being fucked up.
You break something in your body, but hey! You don't notice it much, because you can't feel pain! Grats with ruining your body!

With no pain, you can't tell if something is too hot, too cold (Frost damage to your body ain't nice), you can't tell easily if you got hurt in general by something. For that matter, your sense of pleasure is probably ruined as well.

That girl will have to be extremely careful all her life.
