Re: Post Polio Pain
Hi, to All,
Polio is a central nerve deal, since I was 6 months old,
I have it in my left leg, lower back and lack of muscle tone makes the left leg shorter when I walk, I think it pinches off the nerve and circulation to my left leg,
For the past 3 years ive been using the TENS unit on varies parts from the buttocks down and it was very painful in the beginning, not use to that type of nerve/muscle stimulation, I could only apply it for 5 minutes, It would make the muscle twitch,
Since then ive been able to increase the duration and sleep with it on low and it helps keep my left leg warm from blood circulation / or I apply it in the morning for a couple of hours on medium. I also "Arnica"massage twice a day, +yoga
That type of activity has tone/strengthen and helped realign lower back and leg natural position when laying down, and to where I can actually apply pressure on my left leg, without as much pain, and semi support my
overweight body, for a short period of time before getting fatigued,,
It is operating better than the peg leg gait/walk that i did for over 50 years.
The damage is done, so chronic pain is always there but not as intense.
I use SAM e, plus other herbs,, Alternate health.
Ive been through all of the drugs for many years, and they stop work so good after long term use,
drugs are an epidemic any more, the young doctors dont know polio dont care much because it pretty much eradicated in the world.
There are more important patients with "popular problems"
So you can give this a try, it might help your situation.
Medical support is sparse
I feel we are pretty much on our own. Thanks for your time Good Day
