In brief: Very rare

Experiencing a fracture without pain would be very rare.
Occasionally, i will see a patient who had an x-ray that was incorrectly interpreted as a fracture by another clinician. A patient with severe neuropathy and the inability to sense pain would be someone who could have a fracture without pain.
