I've been having sporadic pains in my torso for more than a year now. And by now, I'm indifferent to them. Like I can feel the pain, but I don't care - I don't have an emotional reaction to it. I don't take painkillers for it anymore. Yesterday I went to the dentist and she found injuries inside my mouth and she told me it looked like I had been chewing on the inside of it on the oral mucosa. I might have, unintentionally, and not known it. I remember repetitively brushing my tongue hard against the sharp edges of my molars, causing abrasions though. I think this sort of describes it. I'm not a child but I found this quote from the article pretty accurate to my situation, though mine is not as severe to the point of having bitten off my tongue or causing fractures: See, the purpose of pain is to tell you not to do something to your body. If you're indifferent to pain, you have to take the signal that your body's being damaged when you're hurting it and stop whatever you're doing. So that's my theory. Has this happened to anyone else? Does anyone know what I'm trying to say here?
