How to cope with phantom limb pain

When an auto accident or other catastrophic event causes the loss of a limb to amputation, physical and psychological recovery take a long time. The patient must deal with not only the initial trauma, but also with the necessity of adapting to his or her “new normal” that usually includes learning how to perform tasks and functions with a prosthesis. In addition, US News reports that as many as 95% of amputees suffer from phantom limb pain. This phenomenon gets its name from the fact that the pain seems to come from the limb that the patient no longer has.

Driving and using your cellphone to text or call others is a violation of the law in Illinois. In 2018, the governor passed legislation to make cellphone and texting offenses moving violations. That decision went into effect the following year in July. Since then, there have been fines for drivers who decide to text or use their phones while driving.
