She's 71 and has literally never felt pain. Her strange condition could help revolutionize pain management.
Jo Cameron has been pain-free all her life — something many might dub a superpower of sorts.
While other women struggle with the pain that comes along with childbirth, when Cameron gave birth to her two children, she felt only “a tickle.” Later on in life, she didn’t realize she needed to have her hip replaced until she physically couldn’t walk. She also couldn’t tell she had been burned until others smelled burning flesh, and failed to notice cuts until someone else pointed out blood. Spicy foods — such as Scotch bonnet chili peppers — didn’t set her mouth on fire and instead left her with a “pleasant glow.”
Her body also heals more quickly than most, with her injuries rarely resulting in scars.
