Re: HELP-any polio survivors out there****
I had mild case of polio at age 2 in 1955
I recovered good enuf to spend a 4 year hitch in the Army at age 21, lied on the medical appl. and health history. Muscle and joint pain, yes occassionally but not without cause, yes I might work too much and push myself too hard as "they" say. I'd rather die with sweat on my brow and callouses on my hands than bed sores on my butt
five strokes in the last 20 years most recent 03/08/2005 PPS who knows, I have a maternal family history of stroke, so probably/maybe not.
No retinal hemmohraging, but within the last 4 yrs have developed Angiod streaks and Maculopathy, have very poor low light vision, do not drive at night and have eyes that are slow to adjust for changes in visual conditions(bright to dim light and vise versa) My eye Dr says my vision prblms are related to my overall health condition (whatever that means)
