Early-onset Alzheimer's can present itself in people in as young as their 30's and 40's.

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

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.

Just an interesting fact: even after they lost a limb a lot of ppl still feel pain or itches in it. Its called Phantom Pain.

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?

My grandma had a good sense of humor.

HAD.

Definitely Alzheimer.

On a side note, I used to think Alzheimer's was called "Old Timers", because it only happened to old people.

Could be phantom limb pain.
User avatar #62 - vanoreo (04/22/2013) [-]
Or a bad case of Alzheimer's.

She didn't have a good sense of humor, she just had Alzheimer's, and your grandfather started to sob...

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.

*hammerhead
User avatar #106 to #105 - evilpotato (04/24/2013) [-]
Yeah but I saw in the previous comments on the content you never get notifications for your name being mentioned, and wanted to write a comment that would do it in a way that wasn't too obvious.
#107 to #106 - hammarhead (04/24/2013) [-]
i love you.
User avatar #37 - Loppytaffy (04/21/2013) [-]
Ah but people can have phantom sensations in removed limbs.
#32 - sirbutterballs (04/21/2013) [-]
Then she was beaten to death with a leg.
#76 - anon (04/22/2013) [-]

User avatar #35 - Katzie (04/21/2013) [-]
My first thought was that it was a legitimate question, his leg was removed not his foot.
**** I'm retarded.
#29 - zombiefied (04/21/2013) [-]
I'm so sorry.
User avatar #27 - buttholee (04/21/2013) [-]

#25 - budokai (04/21/2013) [-]
