Still Waters Posted May 24 #1 Share Posted May 24 (IP: Staff) · Scientists say they have found out how a rare genetic mutation allows a woman to live her life feeling virtually no pain. Doctors were first alerted to Jo Cameron's condition after she had a serious operation and she needed no pain relief during her recovery. Researchers at University College London (UCL) have discovered how the mutation works at molecular level. They said the study could lead to development of new treatments. Mrs Cameron, 75, who lives near Loch Ness, has previously told of how she only realises her skin is burning when she smells singed flesh. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-highlands-islands-65694397 Previously: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-highlands-islands-47719718 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
