Question Re: any polio survivors out there?

Hi All
I have had this question for a long time. I am hoping this is
the correct place to ask.
As children my sister & I both were in the hospital with "non
paralytic polio". Only lasting effects was a slight weakness in
my back & legs. My sister has no weakness.
My question is---does anyone know of PPS in people that
had non paralytic polio? I have read that it is an unresolved
issue in the medical field. Any information is appreciated.
Thanks in advance------Kasey

Re: Any polio survivors out there?

Hi - There are quite a few of Non-Paralytic Polios that now have PPS - I have read quite a few books and have had contact with some. So it can happen to anyone that had any type of Polio- the hardest thing is finding a doctor who knows enough and cares.

Best to You (I also have done alot of research on the Net)

Janet
Thank you so much for answering. ~ 12 years ago I went
to a neuro Dr with RLS symptoms. I now have more symptoms
that possibly could be PPS. But, who knows! I probably need to
see the neuro again. My primary Dr is clueless. Not joking.
What books or literature can you recommend? I am so grateful
for any way to educate myself on this subject.
Kasey

Hi - It is so difficult to find a doctor who knows and believes. I would recommend Dr. Bruno, he has been researching and really knows his stuff when it comes to PPS- He wrote the book 'Polio Paradox' - it is wonderful and so great to read, I call the book my 'Polio' Bible.

Best to you Hugs Janet
