"There once was a man with a wooden leg named Smith."
"Oh really? What's the name of his other leg?"

Actually its quite common to have phantom itching in a missing limb.

It might have been a legit question from someone who cares about the mental health of someone they love.

unlike you.

If anyone is curious about this phenomenon:
Its called Phantom Libms, and has been under research by a world renown neuroscientist named Dr. Ramachandran (check him out.) The short explanation is that basically, in your brain, you have a laid out map of all the sensory nerves in your body. For example, if I touch your lip, a certain part of this map that represents "lip" will be stimulated. So what happens is that when you lose your leg/arm etc, the parts on the "brain map" that are next to the leg/arm, grow into the leg/arm part of the map. For example, on the map, your right cheek will be next to your left arm. So when you lose your left arm, your right cheek will sometimes grow into your left arm on your brain map. Then, If I touch your right cheek, you will "feel" your left arm, even though its not there. Makes sense?

I've got a friend who's an amputee. All the time she says her missing foot itches, she even says she feels like she can wiggle her big toe. Sometimes I wave my hand around where the foot would be and she says it stops "itching". It's so ******* weird.

you're close. the rest of the nerves are still there, and the brain still subconsciouly thinks the limb exists, even though it doesn't.

My grandpa of a few greats back had his arm bitten off by a hammarhead shark. From what my grandma told me about him, he had something called phantom arm syndrome or something like that. Essentially, people still have nerves going to where the missing appendage was, and they still think thy can feel it from time to time.
