I suspected PPS, but Dr.s just ignored me. I have kept a journal and find I have about 10-year cycles. I am now in my 5th cycle at 82. I was diagnosed UC Davis in CA Feb./2008 ( nearly 70 yrs. after paralytic Infantile Paralysis in L. leg) Wore brace for unknown time as infant. L. arch muscle tearing, wear orthotics. AFO brace since 2004.
Now- from 5/19-8/2020: 20 + lbs. unexplained weight loss, flaccid muscles in all extremities, general fatigue, atrophy of L. leg & buttock, trouble sleeping w/o drug, swallowing difficulties, w/o liquid after every bite. extremely cold sensation of both feet, most of the time.
Happily married, but sexual intercourse too painful for years. I have been dealing with some of these issues for so long, they almost seem normal. I always have been able to adjust.
How did you find out about PolioToday.org?
By looking up Dr. Richard L. Bruno, whose "Polio Paradox" i re-read recently.
