Anyone else exposed to polio as a fetus having symptoms now?
My mother was pregnant with me when she had polio. She has been suffering with post polio syndrome since the 1980s. I have been suffering with many of the same symptoms for over 10 years and am trying to find out if there are others with the same situation or, perhaps, women who were pregnant when they contracted polio and now that child has post polio symptoms.
It was been said that I would have a deformity and that "no babies were born with birth defects from polio", however, if a baby were already fully formed and taking into account that the virus affected the brain, isn't it possible that it did not show up in those babies but is now showing up in them as adult
I would like to find out if anyone else knows of someone with a similar situation.
