Not only that, the mother also added, Brown once put his hand in a glass of coffee that was still so hot, besides that he had also put his hand on a stove that was so hot without feeling the slightest pain or heat. Even when he fell and broke a bone Brown never complained of pain or even cried. It’s not that no action has been taken to cure the child’s illness, even Carrie and her husband, Randy Brown, have visited the doctor several times to find out and treat strange conditions that have been suffered by their son. But to no avail, doctors said that Brown’s rare disorder could never be treated. The only medical advice is how to teach Brown how to recognize pain. And now Brown has started to understand that bleeding is a bad condition for his body, but unfortunately he still does not understand that there are various levels of pain. Congenital Insensitivity to Pain or what is also known by other medical terms, namely Heteditary Sensory Neuropathies (HSN) is a disorder or deterioration disease that occurs in the nervous system which results in loss of feeling or sensation from outside, especially in the area around the feet and hands.
This disease is so complicated, has many types, is hereditary and very, very rare. However, it is certain that all of these types have similar symptoms, namely loss of sensory nerve function and control responses to temperature and pain. As a result, a person with a disease like this will experience the freedom to move spontaneously when his body is exposed to external stimuli. As quoted from the Daily Mail, Isaac Brown also suffers from anhidrosis, which is a rare condition that only affects less than 100 babies born in the United States. This condition makes sufferers unable to control their body temperature, nor can they feel hot or cold. In fact, in the summer when the temperature was peaking, Brown had to be locked up in the house or wearing a cooling vest to reduce his body temperature which was so hot. The good news, the Brown family says that they are currently working with the Mayo Clinic to examine Brown’s DNA in the hope of uncovering the genetic mutations that lead to the disorder he experienced. Although Brown is not like normal children in general, Brown’s parents said they still accept the condition of their beloved son as is. Because according to him, Brown is a very valuable asset in the life of his parents. We pray that the efforts currently being pursued by the family will soon get a bright spot so that Brown will get further assistance.
