Scientists surprised that a woman, Jo Cameron, lives without pain, anxiety or fear for 71 years.

In medical term, it is called as “congenital insensitivity to pain” where people have not able to feel pain in any part of their body.

The question is why? It is because “a gen” that responsible to pains and senses had mutated genetically.

This is “a rare genetic mutation” caused people did not feel pain due to such as broken bone and wounded, and loss senses of fear, anxiety and smell or anosmia.

Mutation affects on “the peripheral nervous system, which connects the brain and spinal cord to muscles and to cells that detect sensations such as touch, smell, and pain” (National Institute of Health, NIH, 2019)


Diamond (2019) reported that only two people found have this kind of genetic mutation.

Moreover, NIH (2019) mentioned of 20 reports of rare mutations in the medical publications. Not that many compared to billions of human being ever live on earth.

Two effects of “congenital insensitivity to pain,” positive and negative.

Negative effects lead to undetected health conditions such as wounds that could be accumulated. Thus, might caused to decrease life expectancy.

More than 300 million people who faced surgery worldwide every year, unluckily half of them got extreme pain problems.

The positive ones that this finding could stimulate further researches to help people who have “severe pain” due to surgery.

Have you know any one who that has no pain, no fear and no anxiety in her or his life?

  1. WOW, What a concept! No, I have never heard of or known anyone who feels no pain, no fear and no anxiety. That could be very dangerous, and even deadly.

    Thanks for sharing this interesting information.

    Happy Sunday to you!

  5. I haven´t ever known a person without fear, I think that is an irrational feeling so we can´t control it. We should to learn some technics to can live with our own fears.

  6. I've heard of people feeling no pain, but not of people having no fear. I think it would be kind of dangerous to have neither. One would never know when they are in harm's way.

  8. This sounds horrible. I like the idea of not living with anxiety but it is so important to feel pain and fear.

  12. Es la primera vez que leo esto!! No conozco ni habia oido a alguien no tenga dolor ni miedo ni ansiedad, pero sé hasta dónde nos puede llevar la ansiedad y el dolor, mi marido actualmente tiene ataques de pánico, eso tambien es la primera vez que lo veo directamente!! Sentirnos el dolor es algo importante en nuestra vida, pero si nos preocupamos mucho más de lo normal alli dónde la cosa cambiará.
    Gracias por el artículo, según mis experiencias, no quiero ser como esa mujer que habias mencionado en tu artículo ni como mi marido, el que todavia sigue tomando medicamentos. Quiero Vivir normal ni con ningun miedo ni com mucho miedo.
