Please keep in mind that before treating any condition, including Post-Polio Syndrome, as TMS or PPD, it is vitally important to consult with your physician in order to rule out any serious medical conditions. To learn more about TMS and PPD, and to help you figure out if you have it, visit our An Introduction to TMS page and watch the video there. Some more guidance in figuring out if this approach is right for you can be found in the video at the top of our So You Think You Might Have TMS page.

Post-Polio Syndrome referenced in TMS Books

It refers to people with residual leg weakness from childhood poliomyelitis who experience increasing weakness as they get older, along with pain in the buttock and legs. Increasing weakness was medically documented years ago as a common occurrence in people who had poliomyelitis. The pain is a new phenomenon, hence the creation of a new syndrome. In the patients I have seen with this problem the pain is due to TMS, no doubt engendered by the fear and frustration associated with increasing weakness. The pain is not part of the poliomyelitis.
