Does anyone else have a child who does not feel pain or discomfort? Andrew feels sharp pain (falling down, bee sting, etc), but he does not feel pain or discomfort that comes on gradually (asthma attack). Consequently, we have gotten into scary situations with him because he doesn't know when he is seriously ill. As an example, he almost died from an infection at 3 yo that should have been excruciating, but the only sign I had of it was he stopped moving his neck and turning his entire body to look at things - he didn't complain a single time.
Does anyone else have experience with this and do you have any tips.
YES! I understand!
You should have seen me trying to explain this to the surgeon this past Monday. Sigh!
I don't have any suggestions. My son is 11, and we still have that problem.
