When he was about 8-9 his mother saw a lump/growth in the palm of his hand about the size of a small grape. She asked him what it felt like and he had no response or indication of pain. We took him to the doctor who lanced the lump. There was a piece of glass within. His mother asked how he got glass in his palm or if it hurt. He recalled a few months back that he had broken a milk bottle and cleaned it up and maybe that was it, but never complained about pain. Actually, looking back, he never complained about any pain. His mother and I always felt that he just had a high pain threshold. hmm, I myself have a pretty high pain threshold, but yes, I can feel pain.
