Not sure if you read these, but I have similar issues with my leg, while my issues is diffrent I get phantom itchs on my leg. I found scratching in different location on the leg will sometimes solve the itch. For me I sware the nerves have been rerouted and scratching the back of my thy scratches an itch on my caf

I can't imagine having an itch I just wouldn't be able to get rid of. Saying prayers they find better ways of treating everyone that's missing a limb. You are such an amazing person.

I used to get that. I had a number of abdominal surgeries as a kid and it messed up some of the nerves in my abdomen. I used to have one spot that was innnnncredibly itchy but I couldn’t actually “itch” it. I would scratch until the skin was raw or I was actually bleeding on many occasions, and the itchy feeling wouldn’t stop. Luckily, it has improved over the years.

@Joe Shcmoe Because she isn't bitter about it. Instead, she makes videos and has a platform intended to help those who go through similar things as her. That is not a personality she puts on for TRvid points, she is just a person sharing her experiences, so that others can feel more comfortable about their lost limbs as well.

One of my only memories of my grandfather was when he used to ask me to go scratch his feet (his prosthetic feet that were all the way across the room) because his feet itched. He was wheel chair bound and an elder, prosthetics have gotten way better recently. But sometimes I still dream of walking to the corner where his legs were and scratching them for him, he said he had to see me scratch and it worked. ( Edited for grammar)

I’m guessing he found it easer because when he felt the plastic so when you scratched it you felt the plastic and his brain felt the itch going way, the brain is a fascinating and odd body part.

Ever since I heard of phantom itches, I never been so grateful to have all my limbs. Kudos to you and all other amputee's for having to endure! I'm hoping someone invents a prosthetic that sends tiny stingy shocks when you touch it. Maybe that will help??

Have you tried pouring hot water over it in the shower? I mean really hot, but not yet burning. Like right below the temperature where it would hurt or be uncomfortable to regular non-itchy skin. It works to get rid of the itchiness. I don't think it's healthy to do on a regular basis, like everyday. But as someone who has had really bad (severe) itching, I think it's totally worth to remove the suffering. It actually works against itching the moment your skin touches the hot water, that's the thing. However, this works in the spot where it itches. I'm not to sure about amputated parts.

I know this doesn't compare to having a missing limb. However I remember when I broke my arm/wrist on my dominant hand, and had to wear a cast for weeks. The itching was driving me mad. I decided to make it into a game/contest with my mind/will. I decided to try and perceive the itch as simply a sensation, but neither as a positive or a negative. It sounds ridiculous I know. I treated the sensation as a meditation object. After awhile it began to work, and I could actually just focus on the itch as just a sensory thing, and not maddening at all, just simply an object. Have you ever tried/experienced that with your phantom limb? I hope this doesn't come across as pretentious in my part? I know a broken arm isn't a missing limb. Just wanted to share in hopes it might help you. Found your show after falling down the u tube rabbit hole😀. I really enjoy it. All the best from P.G B.C. Canada 🇨🇦.

Read a study a long while back where they had monkeys and tested itching with scratching the spine. Apparently it offered some relief. Id say, since you have nothing to lose, try scratching along the bottom of your spine and work your way out and see if it helps any. Anecdotally, I have gotten itches to go away this way when my feet were packed away in boots, but my limbs are all present as well. Phantom limb pain could work different.

I've never lost a limb, but I had a massive breast reduction. From time to time, my brain decides that the part of my breast I've removed is itching and it drives me CRAZY bc I no longer even feel the under side of what's left of my boobs, and scratching that dormant skin is very frustrating.

I experience something a bit similar, I sometimes get an itch under my ribcage, and it's impossible to scratch it. My dad told me he has this sometimes too, and I researched it online, and apparently it's just the nerves getting confused, to make it simple 😂 it's very confusing because you feel like you're supposed to be able to scratch it except you can't

Just a thought. During meditation classes the hardest part to get through for me was when you have an itch and need to scratch it. Through alot of self discipline you can train your mind to override the itches. Idk if this is relevant to you or not but like I said it's just a thought.

I’ve broken my ankle a few times, and the first time I had this giant cast that was above my knee, and when it was put on, my knee was slightly bent so if I tried to say stick something into the cast to scratch an itch I just wouldn’t be able to without hurting my leg, so I had to deal with something like this for about a month before I got a shorter cast, but even then I couldn’t scratch any itches I got on my ankle or foot.

I've had no feeling in my right calf/shin since I had surgery a few years ago and they cut my nerves by accident, and this is the most annoying thing. I usually forget about not feeling anything there, as I've grown accustomed to it, but having an itch and being unable to please it is the worst.

I actually have something to say about this. I read and listened to a bunch of books on phantom limb syndrome. Something I learned was that since all parts of the body converge on the brain, it's possible to "stimulate" the phantom limb by stimulating what is basically it's "brain neighbor". If I remember correctly the front part of the foot was located very closely to the 🍆 part of the brain. They found this out after a veteran with PLS had complaints of an itchy foot and found that scratching his groin alleviated his phantom itch. Im not a science person, nor a doctor. I probably butchered all of this. But I 100% remember multiple sources claiming the guy itched one place and it cured the phantom itch. So if you haven't already tried, you could try itching literally anywhere else and hopefully it helps?

I learned about this in one of my psychology classes in undergrad. The control center for your genitals is right next to the control center for your feet on the motor strip. Sometimes the signals get confused and signals that mean to go to the genitals will go to the feet and vice versa. Some scientists think this is the reason so many people have foot fetishes! The brain is weird haha.

Must be similar to what I get when I get an itch in my foot that is mostly numb due to nerve damage, so it's impossible to scratch. You can scratch until you draw blood but it's not going to stop the itch.

I get phantom itch all the time and I am not even an amputee...I can't imagine what you must be going through when you get it. It sounds a billion times more irritating than what I've ever experienced. I normally scratch different areas on my body until I find where the actual itch is, but you are not able to do that. I feel for you deeply!

I have a similar thing that happens every so often in my thigh but I am not an amputee. I've had a few knee surgeries. The place where the anesthesiologist was poking and prodding to numb my leg was my thigh and since then the feeling hasn't entirely came back. Every once in a while it feels like it itches but I can't like feel the area so I can't itch it. It's also really sensitive and little taps can be very painful. Another weird thing is if I get tapped or hit in the hip it hurts that thigh area. I feel really bad about busting my knee twice, especially because i first injured it in 9th grade then the second time in 11th and my parents had to pay for the surgeries. I also get down in the dumps about not being able to do all the things I used to but and sure am thankful that I still have my leg. Okay it's late, goodnight

After my 2nd C-section I began to have insain itching between my scar and my belly button. Not too unusual, it is a healing surgery, but then I discovered that scratching the area resulted in... Nothing. I could not feel myself scratching, just an insain itch that made me want to scream! I understand it has something to do with the nerves in my skin being cut through twice, but yeah. It took years for the nerves to heal enough to be able to scratch when the itching would start... But the spot I have to scratch is on my side? The area that itches still doesn't have feeling and probably never will again. Just a lot of itching that can be relieved if I scratch my side. Nerves are weird!!!

TheAcidicMolotov, hey there! As a mom who was blessed to be able to have my second son naturally after my first was a section, there are many reasons why a mother may not be able to have what we call a VBAC. Some don't want to take the risk of rupture, and that's fine! Many women may not have access to a hospital that will allow for a VBAC- due to the risks most hospitals won't do them unless they have their own ORs on the l and d floor. And third, some women have medical conditions that prevent natural birth from being an option. My mother in law was such a person. She was born with deformities in her pelvic floor and she needed reconstruction surgery. Therefore for her to birth would mean to undo all her surgeries and need to give her another complete reconstruction, as well as take away the ability for her to have more kids. At the end of the day i absolutely agree! C sections are WAY overdone in this country. However I understand when moms choose not to try and VBAC their subsequent babies.

I’ve never got amputated surgically but I always get phantom itches on my palms, thighs, arms, legs, and feet. Even if you scratch the spot where you think it’s at it still would feel like you can’t even feel the relief when scratching it hard nor shaking the spot. It sometimes stings, tingles, & itches at the same time. Frustrating part is to just calm down and wait until the itch fades after 1-2mins.

Phantom pain sounds really painful, but a phantom itch really is super irritating. At some point, my foot would start getting really itchy and despite my hours of finding the itch I still couldn't find it but what helps me is that I soak my feet in cold water and let myself focus on the cold rather than the itch. I dun have a missing leg but I do hope this helps

Instead of mirror therapy you could try to sorta focus on the itch, and internally examine the feeling of it, at the same time imagine the rest of your leg and the feelings associated with it, then imagine the feeling of scratching it, the drag of your nails across your skin, weather the skin is rough cause it's dry or it's smooth cause you moisturize, etc. This is more along the lines of visualization exercises, but you may be able to eventually train yourself to use your imagination of scratching as a phantom scratch to get rid of phantom itch. I've been practicing getting rid of itches without scratching them and it works sometimes, but if it's somewhere on my face it doesn't work too well.

Hey so I did a thesis last semester about VR. One of the topics was the application of vr in the medical field. And phantom pains and itches came up that by using Virtual reality you overide your proprioception that you experience and are able to get rid of most of the Phantom pains and itches. I don't know if you will ever read this but I'd suggest reading up on it and consulting with your doctor about the possibilities.

Something that always helped my grandfather was putting pressure above the knee and massaging it fairly hard. I know everyone is different but if this could help someone in any way then I want to share it

I have had a phantom itch several times before without having any missing limbs so I honestly think that the universe just really dislikes me

Hmmm, did you try to stimulate your end nerves with electric shocks when its happening?

I get itches in my skin on occasion that I cannot scratch to save my life and I'm not an amputi. I'm so sorry it must be really hard honestly but you're such a badass for sharing with us!

That's just like when I have an itch inside of my body, like inside of my ear and I obviously can't reach it, it's sooo frustrating

Try to strengthen your muscle there multiple times. If doesnt work try wiggling it or swinging it front and back If it doesnt work try to use that part of your body to step on the floor or massage it using the floor by pressing that part of your body to the floor and move it slow and well pressed in rotational movement.i hope it helps

A question that might be stupid but I'd really like to understand: Would it be beneficial to "itch" the prosthetic foot and watch yourself do that? Maybe that would give some kind of relief through association?

I just slap at the numb part. That’s where the nerve damage is and it usually helps

It might get itchy from being dry or always being inside a case all the time, maybe put on lotion or hydrocortisone cream! If that doesn’t help at all then slap it or rub it! If truly nothing works breathe for four seconds hold for four seconds, then breathe out for four seconds! Focus on breathing!

What if you drop something on your prosthetic foot when it itches? Might stimulate the nerves to stop the phantom itch?

The body wants to torture us with itches that either is in the throat or somewhere that DOESNT exist anymore 😀

A friend of mine has this It's super annoying base on his description, so what he did was he stood up and swayed his stub, sometimes he stretches it so the skin would be still and he'd rub the side of the stub to make the itchiness and pain go away, or at least dampen it Sometimes stretching the skin would help, but really, standing up leaning to a wall and swaying it or stretching it before rubbing would help - My friend.

I suffered from VERY severe exema when I was a kid, sued to help cooling my hands with cold water/icepack. Might not work though, no idea how temperature affects amputees, just wanted to bring it up in the hope you can use it 🙂 Ty for the vids btw

Sometimes i also have a phantom itch.(im normal) i feel itchy in part of my body but can't be scratch . Usually i stimulate the region and then another part of my skin become itchy and the itch is gone. Maybe my nerve send the wrong signal

There's that classic phenomenon where you cover your real right hand, say, and have a fake right hand uncovered right next to it. After repeated touching of the fake hand, your brain believes the fake hand is your real hand, and some people can even feel the touching happening on their real hand. Maybe you could try the same thing with your leg.
