CIPA

Has anybody heard of this disorder before, besides those who watch House, md? CIPA stands for Congenital Insensitivity to Pain with Anhidrosis. This means that people who suffer from this genetic neurological disorder can't feel pain, heat or cold, and therefore can't sweat (thus the "anhidrosis" part). Lucky them, huh?

Do you think so? :roll:
Not feeling pain, you can injure yourself and not even know. Not feeling differences in temperature, you can overheat (when you do not sweat) or you can get frostbite :roll:
Do you still think, they are lucky?
Wiki wrote:Most infants afflicted with the disorder do not live past 3 years of age, and those who do rarely pass age 25.

First think, then vomit :roll:

Well, i was obviously joking. Sorry if it wasn't clear enough. Plus CIPA patients can't feel an orgasm either!

I think, they don't care much about orgasm dieing being 3 years old...

I meant the ones who survive.
