I found and sent a response to this question and attached a copy below . I feel so sorry for those twins and anyone stranded in the hoopla of contemporary autism. The Experts of Autism unknowingly miss the real simple things like the Autism Pain tolerance. The Pain tolerance among many things used to be common knowledge in Autism circles and our life was better when it was at least part of the equation. Today , modern autism just assumes we (autistic's) are too stupid to feel pain and honestly many providers just see us in a group home as a pay check. It is easy to be the 'expert' in autism if you have no serious peer review or will listen to those of us that have been there and done that. Sadly most of us that figured out autism realize it is just a thought process that has never been in a book before and at one end it is Einstein and the other it is MR/DD. Since no expert of any stipe has done what we have done and unknowingly thinks in short cuts the autism impasse is here to stay.
''What could be wrong with my twin?
My fun loving twin with aspergers syndrome is trying to hide his physical pain.If i catch him he insist i didn't.And resorts to smiles and fits of laughter the way he usually is,entertaining, baking, being quirky etc.When when he thinks no one is watching he curls up in pain and coughs blood.He's admitted to me that he feels like he's sun burned all over but feels freezing at the same time. his body is sore.just brushing against him is painful for him. says his brain keeps zapping him.
I share the fever symtoms, headache and hot and cold part.or maybe that's just a twin thing.Regardless, he's having it more extreme.it was kinda of depressing talking to our therapist. im not used to seeing my redhead twin so dead (my hair is a boring black).he only admitting to the therapist that he's tired n tired of ppl, n for weeks now.He love's our therapist.He kind of fears doctors and doesn't want anyone to worry.we're already worried. my twin n I both don't like the MD, as she doesn't do anything.I want to tell our therapist instead about his brain zaps and his sleeping for like 18 hours+ without me being able to wake him up.
pets would miss him, as he's the only 1 they'll sleep on.we're both 19, parents uninvolved.should i respect my twins wishes? is this normal for autistic ppl? it would be helpful to at least kind of have a sense of what the therapist might do.twin just sits under a blanket like a canary all day,and that's probably how he's going to be next time our t,he sees us. ...show more ""

Dear Reader ,,,, you (Both) have the Autism pain tolerance, you only feel 7 and above on the pain scale. That means your hidden from the ills of your body. Contemporary autism forgot or simply doesn't know of this condition and in cases like this modern medicine is just flabbergasted when we present with wild symptoms. He could be suffering from something like appendix issues and not feeling enough pain to know what is hurting or where it is hurting in his body
I am old autism missed rain man's curse and as such got to experience the real world as have 200 more like me. We do to much of a life to suit contemporary autism so they ignore us. As for the pain we walk from car crashes 'unhurt' to discover serious injuries. Simple little things like being lactose intolerant ( being allergic to dairy products) presents like stomach cancer. In other words the simple presents horrible. Our autism hero Alan Turing 1912-1954 Ran marathons with out 'the wall' do his pain tolerance.
On Wikipedia look up congenital insensitivity to pain.
