What symptoms of phantom limb do not cause pain?
V. Ramachandran desribes a bit of this in his book "The Emerging Mind". The Penfield-Homunculus is not an exact replica of the body, because the face is located directly bes…ides the hand. Therefore, when a person is missing one arm, the neurons can cross-link, that is when they don't receive any input they form connections with the nearest area - in this case the face. This is why people with phantom limbs sometimes feel their missing hand when their face is touched, another example is that when the face is stimulated with ice cubes, they feel as if the phantom limb got cold.

The only difference between a phantom pregnancy and a real pregnancy is that with a phantom pregnancy you are not actually carrying a baby and you will usually have a period a…nd a negative pregnancy test. You will have the same symptoms as a regular pregnancy and they can last at least as long as 7 months. Scroll down to related links and look at "False pregnancy - Wikipedia"
The hormonal cycle of the bitch assumes that pregnancy has occurred after every cycle, whether or not a mating has taken place. She will therefore experience the physiological… changes of pregnancy over the next 2 months. She will have an increase in progesterone production, milk production and an increase in appetite. She may even go into mild labour. The caregiver may notice physical and emotional changes, particularly 8-9 weeks after her last season. She may exhibit a change in preferred diet to blander food, fluid retention, and a wish not to take her usual amount of exercise, and she may hoard toys and treat them as puppies. There may be restlessness, lack of appetite, panting, trembling, whining and nest-building at the time she would have given birth. There may be a degree of aggression to perceived threats. She will usually return to normal after 2-3 weeks, 48hrs after the birth would have occurred. As this is a physiological occurrence which settles over 2-3 weeks, treatment is rarely needed. If possible try to reduce stimulation of the mammary glands, by reducing stroking and wiping, and not allowing the bitch to lick excessively, as these will increase prolactin release and further milk production. Occasionally the bitch may become ill, by producing excessive milk, or other problems. She may need treatment to reduce milk production, such as diuretics or hormone treatment. Although some advocate reduced fluid intake to induce dehydration and reduce milk production, others feel that this may be unsafe. It is rare (but not unknown) for bitches who are spayed (ovariohysterectomised), to exhibit these changes. Although the majority of the hormones are being produced by the ovaries, some are produced in the adrenal glands.
yes it can.
Your face contains many different sensory organ, so determining the cause of facial pain may prove tricky. However, common causes could include allerigies or infections. If ph…ysical trauma is not the cause, then neurological diseases like Bell's palsy and Parkinson's disease could be likely. Be sure to check with your physician immediately if the pain becomes unbearable.
It limits your daily movements,(because the two vertebres that "meet" each other have little texute between them) for example it brings a wrong position because you istinctive…ly try to keep the lombar side of your back extended and as a consequence i have also the cervical part of the spine curve because it !compenses" the curve of the lombar part. Usually it's really painful, in my case it comes back when i study a lot or walk (run and so on) a lot, and i discovered it because of the strong pain in my back. I hope I have been clear and useful!

There are three different theories that people used to explain phantom pains 1) Stress and shock in the body caused phantom pains, along with ghosts. This theory was abandon…ed when more research was available. Reasons two and three are based on actual information. 2) Central cause: this means changes in the brain (specifically in the cortex/thalamus). Let me explain further, say your leg got severed. The area in your brain that was in charge of sending a stimulus to your leg because engulfed by other parts of the part, like for example the part of the brain responsible for sending a stimulus to your cheek. As a result, when a person who has lost their leg touches their cheek they feel their leg because the brain part responsible for leg movement is now entwined with the brain part responsible for cheek stimulus. 3) Although the leg is severed the cell body of the sensory neuron is still intact with the body and therefore can still send messages to the brain. There is still much research being done in this field and we still cannot explain why the brain changes. For more information you should read up on the body's nervous system.
The onset of pain after amputation usually occurs within days to weeks, although it may be delayed months or years.
The lack of any sensory information being relayed by that nerve can cause pain transmission in the spinal cord to go into overdrive, as evidenced by the phantom limb pain expe…rienced by amputees.
