Went to the dentist this AM and got a filling. No biggie. Came back to work. Around 11ish, my chin, cheek and lips on the left were still numb. Then it happened. I got an itch! So I naturally tried to scratch it. But my face was numb so I couldn't! So I literally had an itch I couldn't scratch. How can you feel an itch when you have no feeling??? It was horrible.

Nerves can do such weird things. I had a nerve that was compressed by a growth in my thigh. Where the growth was, there was no problem, but I had shooting pains and itching down that leg all the way to my foot. Had the growth removed, all's well.

I knew an amputee who had tingling and itching in his foot that was no longer there.

That's a very common phenomenon among amputees, even years after the original loss of the limb(s).



It is what it is.

Yep. A good friend of mine had his leg amputated at least 10 years ago. He still has itches in the missing limb after all those years.

I had terrible pain down my left arm that left the arm largely immobile. I was unable to raise the arm or carry anything of any substantial weight without it lighting up.

It was diagnosed as a "frozen shoulder."

Kind of hard to believe as the pain in my shoulder was minimal. Most of the pain was at or below my elbow and ran down the arm in a straight line to the joint at my wrist, spreading out into my fingers.

Nevertheless, a cortisone shot to the shoulder and physical therapy for the shoulder fixed it.

Yeah, nerves are funny.

That was my first thought. That it must be what a phantom limb would feel like. That would be absolutely horrible. I mean, it bothered me a LOT for maybe 30 minutes. But I knew it was only b/c the numbing agent was finally wearing off. So eventually I had feeling back and it was all good and scratchable. But to have to live with that. I can't even imagine.
