Post Polio Syndrome early symptoms and medical care

Posted , 2 users are following.

I have been experiencing increased fatigue over the last couple of years and suspect it could be polio related. Any polio survivors have any advice, insight or ideas on what medical attention to seek out?

    I suffer the same as well. I live in Spain and the doctors here know nothing about PPS. I suffer from breathlessness, pains in my feet and wrist joints and general tiredness. I contracted polio in 1954 when I was 12 so mine could be age related but I am pretty sure its related to polio. I am having injections yearly on my knees and the specialist is looking into PPS. If he comes up with anything I will repost.
