Good afternoon everyone!
When we were in the congress, out expert told us about the phanton limb pain and I found it such an interesting topic that I look up for some more information. It consists on feeling the limb even if it does not work or it has been amputeed. This syndrome was first described in 1552 and it is characterised by painful and nonpainful sensations, this can be divided into the perception of movement and exteroception.

I hope you like it!
