We know people who lack the ability to feel pain. Doesn't really help them any though, as it leads to continually injuring themselves.

Would be nice if the pain from long term untreatable damage could be blocked or in cases where there's an issue in the nervous system.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Congenital_insensitivity_to_pain

Abstract...

Congenital insensitivity to pain (CIP), also known as congenital analgesia is one or more rare conditions in which a person cannot feel (and has never felt) physical pain.... Because feeling physical pain is vital for survival, CIP is an extremely dangerous condition. It is common for people with the condition to die in childhood due to injuries or illnesses going unnoticed. Burn injuries are among the more common injuries.

Maybe conditions like this and other diseases will help us better understand the nervous system, and make it possible to turn off the pain. Although not 100% off, just 90% or something.
