Scientists find genetic mutation that makes woman feel no pain

Doctors identified a new mutation in a woman who barely feels pain or stress. Jo Cameron, 71, from Inverness, Scotland, has a mutation in a previously unknown gene, which scientists believe plays a major role in pain signaling, mood and memory. Cameron has experienced numerous surgical operations with little or no need for pain relief. The discovery boosts hopes of treatments for chronic pain.
