Phantom pain is the pain amputees feel in the place where they have lost a limb. Initially it is hard for some to grasp the fact that they have lost a limb, because they can feel intense pain where their limb was. There are methods to reorient the mind so that the pain goes away or is greatly reduced.

Also relates to the imagined pain a person feels when someone they love disappears from their life.
Sarge, I think I have been hit, I got this horrible pain in my left leg.

Don't worry private, it is only phantom pain you are feeling, we got your leg in a secure location, where no buddy can cause it harm.

The feeling you get when a fire monster is trying to kill you with the help of a red haired person in a gas mask after you woke up from a coma in the 80s while the man who sold the world is playing and the guy who was going to give you plastic surgery dies by being strangled by a person who was sent to kill you and you escape even though they were chasing you on a fire Pegasus
