sugar cube 1963 , i got polio

from the sugar cube vaccine, i woke up at age 4 week could not walk cramps pain , i remember going to the hosp they did a spinal tap , the morning i woke up with this, then i remember going to dr seemed like every week to get shots? i remember one of my legs being thinner than the other did not stay that way .my parents have passed away , i am now 50.. i once was told ny a nero dr, while i was being checked for back and leg pain that he thought it was PPS, when they did EMG said my nerves in my legs are wired werid ,stange paths???i have no difomities now
any way i have a had 2 back surgeries looking at a 3ed .. i am begining to wonder with this pain aches in my legs and muscle spasms in my toes , which make them hurt and bend in all difernt uncontroled ways at times,, more frequent as years pass. if i do have PPS how would i test for this where would i start? thank you

Re: sugar cube 1963 , i got polio

from the best of my knowledge there are no specific test to determing pps. But the one my neurologist gave me was and EMG (nerve study) it determines how much nerve damage and muscle damage we have due to the post polio. I hope I have been helpful

Sugar Cube .. I had the same test that Susan had.. EMG and they did determine the nerve damage due to the polio... But know how you feel and listen to all that have gone thru it and you will know...There is nothing that can be done about it as far as I know... but I haven't check up on any finds for the past few years
