Hello @makmes, welcome to Connect. Is what you are experiencing phantom pain, https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/phantom-pain/diagnosis-treatment/drc-20376278?

If you don't mind me asking and if you are comfortable sharing, what have you tried in the past to address your pain? Does it come and go or is it constant?

Hi Justin, thank you for asking to elaborate my past pain experience. I never tried anything except taking pain relieve medicines at least three times everyday, sometimes even more medicines depending on the severity of the pain. I am comfortable sharing to people who has similar issues and if they were successful dealing with it. Thanks Justin
