I think I'm P.P.

Hi everyone,
I had a very like case of polio at 12yrs. old. Mine was in my neck and shoulders. I haven't been pain free for the past twenty years. Some days are worse than others. I'm currently with a new pain doctor. My previous pain doc, had me take P.T., trigger point injections, then Botox injections.
These muscles stay in a constant state of spasm and numbness. My head seems too get to heavy sometimes. and to have more fun the nerve canel is closing. They now have added sleep apnea to the list. So I guess what I'm asking is their anyone else with these symtoms.
Oh, just a funny foot note, Strong Medicine last night had a patient with post polio.

Hi Teri

Hi Teri;

I am new to this board- I hope you are still out there.... I had polio when I was 5- in my left leg, they figured I was born with it-

I have been having problems over the last 15 years and things have gotten much worse- I just read about PPS and the later affects. Have you been informed? What do you suggest- I know i need test done, but right now I have no insurance and working on getting some help. I am 50 now and like many erased this from my memory but as I have aged- I am getting concerned.

Regards
Janet
