Being Unaware Of Injury

What Causes Not Feeling Injuries?

Not feeling injuries can have various causes, just like most other symptoms.  Finding the true cause means ruling out or confirming each possibility – in other words, diagnosis.

Diagnose your symptoms now!
  • understand what's happening to your body
  • learn what you should be doing right now
  • have a doctor review your case (optional)

Diagnosis is usually a complex process due to the sheer number of possible causes and related symptoms.  In order to diagnose not feeling injuries, we could:

  • Research the topic
  • Find a doctor with the time
  • Use a diagnostic computer system.
The process is the same, whichever method is used.

Step 1: List all Possible Causes

We begin by identifying the disease conditions which have "not feeling injuries" as a symptom.  For example, guillain-barre syndrome.

Step 2: Build a Symptom Checklist

We then identify all possible symptoms and risk factors of each possible cause, and check the ones that apply:
numb/burning/tingling extremities
severe muscle weakness
much reduced sense of taste
poor bodily coordination
recent loss of sense of touch
recent onset fatigue
severely impaired ability to walk
inability to tell hot from cold
low lymphocyte count
heaviness of the legs
incoherent speech
often/always feeling unusually cold
... and so on

Step 3: Rule Out or Confirm each Possible Cause

A differential diagnosis of your symptoms and risk factors finds the likely cause of not feeling injuries.

Arriving at a Correct Diagnosis

The Analyst™ is our online diagnosis tool that learns all about you through a straightforward process of multi-level questioning, providing diagnosis at the end.

In the Nervous System Symptoms section of the questionnaire, The Analyst™ will ask the following question about being unaware of injury:
Do you ever injure yourself without noticing (feeling) it? An example would be cutting yourself with a knife and only finding out when someone points out the blood.
Possible responses:
→ Don't know
→ No - I always feel injuries
→ Sometimes
→ All or most of the time
Based on your response to this question, which may indicate either feeling injuries or not feeling injuries, The Analyst™ will consider possibilities such as Guillain-Barre Syndrome.
