11 HOW DO I KNOW IF I HAVE THE LATE EFFECTS OF POLIO?

Unfortunately, there is no specific test which will determine if the symptoms you may experience are related to the late effects of polio. As the diagnosis must be made through exclusion of other possible causes it is necessary to examine critically all symptoms in order to exclude residual polio, ageing and other health problems.

Do not forget that other people throughout life also experience discomfort and disease. All your problems cannot necessarily be ascribed to the late effects of polio!
