Should there have been pain?

    Question, as I look back on events in my life I remember about 10 yrs agp tearing my Achilles’ tendon while playing flag football. This was before my chronic back pain. When I tore the tendon there was no pain. Nothing, it didn’t even ache. My son was with me and I wonder if my brain had not sent the pain signal because I didn’t want to alarm him. Should there have been pain? There was definitely tissue damage. I remember a lot of people being surprised that I didn’t have pain. Any thoughts?

    Do you feel pain afterwards? or still no pain?

    I never felt any pain from that event. When it happen, the next day, nothing. Had it surgically repaired and now it’s just thicker and tighter than the other one.
    I was just wondering looking back if that should have been painful and my brain just blocked me from feeling pain for other reasons.
