I am amazed by the power of our brains! The fact that our brain fully “remembers” that functional body part that has been removed…that it can make us feel the pain and/or other sensations that existed when that body part was a part of us.
The fact that those neural transmitters can at random bring all those sensations to “life”. I am thankful that these sensations truly do fade over time. I now deal with them them only when I have been greatly stressed or extremely worn out, and they fade faster now.
I had read about phantom pain…and for a while…I did not believe that it would ever let up! LOL Yet…it does…so if you are struggling with this…know…that it will improve!
