    Ever since I was young, I have this panic fear of getting cut, burned or injured.

    Because in the last time I was accidently cut by a sharp object the pain was very very severe, it's like my cells were screaming like a 10,000 watt light bulb.

    The pain was very severe and it definitely felt like a 12 on the The Numeric Pain Rating Scale:

    The problem is that the fear of getting injured really interferes with my normal life and prevents me from leading a normal life like normal people do. Also apparently normal people do not have this panic fear of getting injured like I do.

    And this fear of getting injured really interferes with my quality of life and prevents me from living a normal quality of life like normal people do.

    Does anyone have any idea what could be causing my panic fear of getting injured and what I can do about it?

    Maybe I have allodynia or maybe fibromyalgia?

    What is allodynia

    A fear or panic is usually a phobia (like Agliophobia) , though it might be in part due to a pain tolerance issue. Some would call it common sense, though perhaps it is a little too prevalent with you if it interferes with daily life and can be addressed with therapy like most phobias....

    By therapy you also mean drug therapy or just physiotherapy/physiatry?

    just counselling or psychotherapy usually, but I am not a Dr so if they were to say something different I would listen to them....

    Some people told me that it could be that I'm a biochemical blob so that really explains why I'm so afraid to get injured.

    What I don't understand is: being a biochemical blob or whatever I am, does it mean I can practically live forever?

    Because I had this nightmare where I'm the only surviving human on this planet and everyone else is dead and that I have to struggle on this planet on my own with no one to help me.
