I’ve heard that this is the case but I’m not actually sure if I believe it. Surely ‘normal’ people experience pain pretty much constantly too. Like… They must have small pains, even if they don’t get the “chronic pain” marker. It’s like – it’s organic and normal. Bones ache, scars tingleburnzing where they’ve buggered up the nerves, stray joints do that weird radiating thing when you put pressure on them. It’s just… it would be so weird. It must be a spectrum, at least. You wouldn’t know what was going on, it would be almost as weird as no feedback.

This is only tangentially relevant to your comment of course but the idea of Not Hurting seems very odd.

It’d be like not having period cramps: how would you know you were gonna bleed without feeling like your insides are being hollowed out with a cleaver? Madness.

Ditto. Like, isn’t pain just an inevitable side effect of having a body?
