Re: New to Post-Polio

Hi Dollie,

Tell your doctors you had polio years ago (I suppose you did) and that you need to know if your current problems are post-polio syndrome. Doctors should be aware of this as articles about it were in the medical literature in the late 1980s. They can look up information about it, too. Maybe you can look up the information and what tests you need, print it out and show it to the doctor.

Good luck - Barbara
