Has anyone known of a person who has had a limb amputated? And then experienced what they call phantom pain?
I have seen this first hand and it is quite incredible. The person still feels pain, heat, cold, itching, etc. after the limb is gone.
I have also seen a "healing touch therapist" in the hospital message the absent limb and even go to a specific part of the missing limb that was itching to scratch it. The patient directed the therapist, lower, higher, left, right, until she found just the right spot to scratch. As she did, the patient responded, yes, that's it, Oh, it feels so good.
I was quite blown away. Any thoughts, comments, experiences?
