Synonym Help NeededI need to find a good synonym for "phantom pain."
(Note: I'm trying to describe the phenomenon that occurs in amputees, in which they feel pain in their missing limb, even though their limb doesn't exist anymore.)
I would've just found a synonym for "phantom," but "ghostly" and the like create a different mental image, which could easily confuse readers.
Thanks for helping!
