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!

I'm sure there are others...Now I'm going to have this stuck in my head all night. Anyway, hope that helps.
