Dear Doctor,

I have a stupid question, but please can you give me an answer. Under normal circumstances, if a person were to be inflicted with a needlestick injury, that person would obviously feel pain and discomfort; but what if a person had a few drinks like beers and was still 'normal', would you still feel pain if you were pierced with a needle?

Thank You

WD, you will have to be fairly drunk to not feel it, but it all depends on the circumstances. If you have more questions please post them as a new question to ensure that I receive them. Good luck.
