Have you ever simply wanted to lay in the sun and veg all day?
Perhaps it's too difficult to reach the backyard, or the front yard. We all need time to "play," to let the child within come forth and when the sun is warm and calling our name, if we can't get to the door or through the door, some of that desire to play, some of that child within, is going to give up, and we would then find ourselves a prisoner in our own home. Some of us are bedridden, and for those who are, these pages will help to bring the sunshine to you, with lots of jokes and laughter, stories of our adventures and the crazy antics of the animals that are willing to let us share the house with them. Also some ideas of how to make doorways/step-downs, more accessible for those in wheelchairs or scooters.
The late effects of Polio, called Post-Polio, or PPS, will be covered as well as, CFS, and the effects of anesthesia on Polio survivors. Links to other PPS sites, Crohns and Scoliosis sites, heart attack information, with an article on knowing what to do to survive a heart attack if you are alone; baby-boomers and possible links to their having CFS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome); magnets that work; memory loss in Polio survivors and more are in these pages.

A Brief History of Polio
From Ancient Egypt to the 20th Century
Polio has probably caused paralysis and death for most of human history. The oldest clearly identifiable reference to paralytic poliomyelitis is an Egyptian stele (stone engraving) over 3,000 years old. Cases of poliomyelitis tended to be rare in ancient times, though, as sanitation was generally poor. With improvements in waste disposal and the widespread use of indoor plumbing in the 20th century, epidemics of polio began to occur with regularity in the developed world, primarily in cities during the summer. Because sewage was dumped away from the drinking water supply (a development which helps combat a number of other diseases, including cholera), babies were much less likely to be infected with polio and gain protective immunity. As the children got older and began playing with others, swimming in public pools, and going to school, they were more likely to be exposed to the virus, which was then more likely to cause paralytic poliomyelitis. H.L. Mencken writes of polio epidemics occurring virtually every summer in Baltimore during his childhood in the late 1890s, and this tragic cycle continued through the 1950s. Though the virus only paralyzes about 1% of the individuals it infects (most infections are

Contents Destinations Outbreaks Diseases Vaccinations ... USDA/APHIS
Importing food, plant, animal products U.S. State Department Pan American Health Organization World Health Organization Home ... Purchase Poliomyelitis Description Poliomyelitis is an acute infection that involves the gastrointestinal tract and, occasionally, the central nervous system. It is acquired by fecal-oral transmission. Occurrence Risk for Travelers Clinical Description Clinical manifestations of poliovirus infection range from asymptomatic (the majority of infections) to symptomatic, including acute flaccid paralysis of a single limb to quadriplegia, respiratory failure, and, rarely, death. Prevention A person is considered to be fully immunized if he or she has received a primary series of at least three doses of inactivated poliovirus vaccine (IPV), live oral poliovirus (OPV), or four doses of any combination of IPV and OPV. To eliminate the risk of vaccine-associated paralytic poliomyelitis, OPV is no longer recommended for routine immunization in the United States as of January 1, 2000. OPV is no longer available in this country, although it continues to be used for global polio eradication activities. Infants and Children Adults The remaining doses of vaccine should be administered later, at the recommended intervals, if the person remains at increased risk for poliovirus exposure. Adults who are traveling to polio-endemic areas and have received a primary series with either IPV or OPV can receive another dose of IPV. For adults, available data do not indicate the need for more than a single lifetime booster dose with IPV.

32. Lincolnshire Post-Polio Library [Dr. Henry Writes Bulbar And Spinal Polio]
From the Lincolnshire postpolio library, an article from Dr Henry about bulbar polio involving the brain stem, where the centers for the cranial nerves are located.
Dr. Henry writes about Bulbar and spinal polio
Spinal polio involved damage to the anterior horn cells which run up and down the spinal cord. These cells control motor function only. Sensory cells in the spinal cord were spared, thus we all feel pain and touch. Paraplegics and quadraplegics do not have motor or sensory function below the level of their injury. Spinal polio could damage the muscles of breathing in the chest wall and thus spinal polio victims could also need the assistance of a ventilator or iron lung. Many people had both, spinal and bulbar combined. Actually, many victims that had bulbar alone and had good recoveries had good muscular function because their spinal cord was not involved. With PPS, many of these people are having swallowing and central fatigue problems or problems with any functions related to the cranial nerves (double vision for example). I hope I am explaining this adequately. Statistically, most of us had spinal polio, and most that had bulbar had it combined with spinal. But now we seem to be learning that many of us had brain involvement during the acute infection that did not do any recognizeable damage then, but may be giving us problems now with the total body fatigue or central fatigue of PPS. People who had only the GI form of polio which we had initially when we became ill (flu like) had the non-paralytic type of polio. The mystery now is whether these people may have had silent CNS involvement and are subject to PPS.

O verwhelming fatigue, new muscle weakness, pain and cold intolerance. These Post-Polio Sequelae (PPS) are being reported by at least 70% of people who had paralytic polio, and 40% who had "non-paralytic" polio, 40 years ago.
Unfortunately, most physicians (and even many polio survivors) do not "believe" that PPS are real or know that they are very treatable!

Guided Relaxation for Polio Survivors
(and for everyone else, too...)
A silly question, given our hectic lives and the horrible happenings here and abroad. But some people are more stressed than others and their bodies show it.
Twenty years ago Dr. Bruno began studying and treating survivors of the polio epidemics of the middle 20th Century. He found that more than half were experiencing Post-Polio Sequelae (PPS), the unexpected and often disabling symptoms overwhelming fatigue, muscle weakness, muscle and joint pain, sleep disorders, heightened sensitivity to anesthesia, cold intolerance, and difficulty swallowing and breathing about 35 years after the poliovirus attack. In his 1985 National Post-Polio Survey, Dr. Bruno discovered that emotional stress is the second leading cause of PPS after physical overexertion and exercise. In treating and studying more than 3,000 polio survivors he also found that polio survivors were more Type A anxious, competent and perfectionistic, hard-driving, pressured, time-conscious, and overachieving than people who had already had heart attacks. Dr. Bruno decided that he couldn't treat polio survivors bodies without paying attention to their Type A minds.

Also shown are links to related web sites and topics. MeSH scope note: An acute infectious disease of humans, particularly children, caused by any of three serotypes of human poliovirus ( POLIOVIRUS). Usually the infection is limited to the gastrointestinal tract and nasopharynx, and is often asymptomatic. The central nervous system, primarily the spinal cord, may be affected, leading to rapidly progressive paralysis, coarse FASCICULATION and hyporeflexia. Motor neurons are primarily affected. Encephalitis may also occur. The virus replicates in the nervous system, and may cause significant neuronal loss, most notably in the spinal cord. A rare related condition, nonpoliovirus poliomyelitis, may result from infections with nonpoliovirus enteroviruses.
