Symptoms of Phantom Limb Pain. 

In addition to pain in the phantom limb, some people experience other sensations such as tingling, cramping, heat, and cold in the portion of the limb that was removed. Any sensation that the limb could have experienced prior to the amputation may be experienced in the amputated phantom limb.

* Onset within the first few days of amputation

* Tendency to come and go rather than be constant
* Usually affects the part of the limb farthest from the body,

    such as the foot of an amputated leg
* May be described as shooting, stabbing, boring, squeezing, throbbing or burning
* Sometimes feels as if the phantom part is forced into an uncomfortable position

* May be triggered by weather changes, pressure on the remaining part of the limb

    or emotional stress
