Post Polio Question

Hello,

Okay this may sound like a dumb question but can the only people who get Post Polio are the ones who've had the disease itself?

My doctors keep telling me I have Post Viral Syndrome. I don't know if the two things are similar or not. I have tons of pain everyday. This has been going on since last March. It has interferred with my life to a point where I had to quit my job due to the pain.

Thanks for any info,

Missy

Re: Post Polio Question

Hi,

Post-polio syndrome is only in people who had polio itself. Sometimes a bit of the initial polio disease became inactive but did not disappear. Later in life, it can become active again, causing weakness and other problems.

Hope you feel better soon. Barbara
