Post Polio Syndrome (PPS) might affect those born before the 50’s. Polio vaccines were not available until the late 50's so if you had polio or think you did - people are affected differently by polio as by any illness - checkout POSTPOLIO.ORG.
As a child, I had to wear braces for a few years but with the help of physical therapy and medical treatments I recovered almost completely and even became a professional dancer. In the last ten years or so I started having many symptoms and was prescribed meds that I didn't take or if I did I had more side effects than relief. I am very grateful that, with the help of a Rheumatologist, I discovered that I was suffering from PPS.
Very few doctors and therapist know how to treat PPS, other than to prescribe more medications and the wrong exercises.
With the help of POSTPOLIO.ORG I found the right Physical Therapist and medical help to test my symptoms, learn to cope and go on with an active life.
