VIDEO FOR VETS: Getting Your VA Benefits if You’re Suffering From Phantom Limb Pain
VA Benefits Help for Phantom Limb Pain
Phantom limb pain is a mild to extreme pain felt in the area where a limb has been amputated. This pain is common among veterans who have lost a limb. Hi, I’m Mike Woods, a Veteran’s Disability Benefits Lawyer at Woods & Woods – The Veteran’s Firm. Veterans experience phantom limb pain because even though their limb is no longer there, the nerve endings at the site of the amputation continue to send pain signals to the brain. The brain receives those signals and makes the brain think the limb is still there.
Other Symptoms of Phantom Limb Pain That Vets May Suffer:
In addition to these pains in the phantom limb, some people also experience other sensations such as tingling, cramping, heat and cold in the portion of the limb that was removed. These sensations are extremely uncomfortable and can cause a lot of pain for veterans. Some veterans who experience phantom limb pain may also have trouble sleeping, feelings of depression, sadness, insomnia and may also have post-traumatic stress disorder because of the events causing the amputation.
