Physical & Rehabilitation Medicine
In brief: Phantom pain
Yes, you can.
However, try to avoid any narcotics to control your phantom pain. Because the narcotics, such as lortab, morphine, tramadal etc, will decrease your endorphine production from your brain and spine by negative feeding back, which will make you sensative to the pain. Acupuncture is an appropriate way to control phantom pain by increase endorphine and and by balancing pain out.
