If you have an amputated limb, you may have a condition commonly referred to as stump pain. This type of pain happens at the end of your amputated limb’s stump. Unlike the phantom limb pain that many amputees experience, stump pain occurs in the body part that actually exists. Stump pain is often described as sharp, burning, electric-like or skin-sensitive. The cause of this condition is damaged nerves in the stump region. There are effective treatments available for stump pain.
