polio pain

I tryed to get into this site once, but didn't seem to go through, hope I'm not repeating myself. I had sever polio in 1954, at the age of seven. And went through most everything that was out there. Now I am suffering from pps. So much pain, I not only have the spasms, but also something that feels like a rushing down my legs and arms. Does anyone know what I am talking about? I also cannot now, have a normal bowel movement, since my bowels have stopped working, the doctors tell me they are mostly paralized now. Have to do the old red bag enima every other day. Its a bad ordeal , but I am just thankfull it is not my kidneys. Have anyone else had the bowel problem? I have so much pain, I have simply gotten tired of telling anyone about it. No one wants to hear of our pain. I have recently moved north, and the cold is really hard to take. I moved south to get warm, but missed the grandkids so much, I talked myself into moving back. I think it was a mistake. But one I cannot change. I have such spasms, of the legs, and the twitching is so bad. I lay in bed at night and can't sleep from this rushing feeling in my arms and legs. It will wake me up, and nothing I can do seems to change a thing. Is there any helpfull advice? Maybe I just needed to be honest with someone that understands what it feels like. I would love to hear from anyone that wants to talk about this. Thanks, and GOD bless you all:
