Title: The Late Effects of ME - Can They Be Distinguished From The Post-Polio Syndrome?
[ Full Text Here ] Author(s): Dr. E.G. Dowsett MBChB, Dip Bact.
Original Publication: Originally a Presentation to the All Party Group of MPs on ME/PPS on 31st January 2001.
This Lincolnshire Post-Polio Library Publication February 2001.
Abstract/Extract: Few people would dispute that ME (Myalgic encephalomyelitis), an illness which blights the hopes and aspirations of all sufferers, especially the young, is denied equal treatment in respect of diagnostic facilities, medical coverage and welfare provision. Comparable chronic and unpredictably disabling neurological conditions, for example Multiple Sclerosis, which was formerly ascribed to "hysteria" and similarly neglected, now receive government recognition, facilities within the NHS, and more generous research funding - though the potential cost of effective treatment can still arouse bitter debate. This paper discusses the following: What is ME?; What are the late effects of ME?; Which group of ME sufferers are chiefly at risk of the late effects?; What is the Post-polio syndrome?; Suggested new criteria for the diagnosis and assessment of the post-polio syndrome; Is it possible that many patients diagnosed as having me are sufferers from an illness clinically identical to "non-paralytic" polio?; Is it necessary to differentiate between the late effects of ME and the Post-polio syndrome?; What is the evidence that the late effects of me and the post-polio syndrome can be caused by enteroviruses other than polio viruses 1-3?; How may symptoms of the late effects of ME and Polio be explained?

NOTES

It is the intention of the Lincolnshire Post-Polio Network to make all the information we collect available regardless of our views as to it's content. The inclusion of a document in this library should not therefore be in any way interpreted as an endorsement.

People who had polio and are experiencing new symptoms need to be assessed by medical professionals who are experienced in Post-Polio to determine what is wrong and to give correct advice. We can only make these documents available to you. YOU must then take what you believe to be relevant to the medical professional you are seeing. We are collecting and collating everything we can to enable medical professionals to make informed decisions. Other medical conditions must be looked for first, Post-Polio Syndrome is by diagnosis of exclusion.

"Source" in the context of this catalogue primarily means original author. In a few cases it will be an organisation or conference.
