The Daily Chemist's suggestions on World Polio Day

The majority of persons with significant illnesses who were paralysed recover fully, as do people with minor sickness and nonparalytic types of polio. Less than 25% of those who get polio are permanently crippled.
BRACKNELL, U.K. - Oct. 28, 2022 - PRLog -- The poliovirus is a very contagious illness that results in polio. The majority of virus-infected individuals don't experience any symptoms. However, in a tiny proportion of infected individuals, the virus affects nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord, particularly the nerve cells in the spinal cord that control muscles used in voluntary movement, such as walking.

About 75 percent of cases are moderate. Three to five days after being exposed to the virus, symptoms start to show up and can include a minor fever, headache, sore throat, vomiting, loss of appetite, and a general sensation of being unwell and uncomfortable. The signs last for two to five days before they naturally disappear.

Polio is contracted via a virus. To contract the virus, you must come into contact with it directly. This can happen through direct contact with an infected person or through touching an infected object. The virus resides in your throat and intestines when you have it.

Doctors frequently diagnose polio based on symptoms like stiffness in the neck and back, strange reflexes, and trouble breathing and swallowing. Cerebrospinal fluid, a colourless fluid that surrounds your brain and spinal cord, or a sample of your faeces can all be tested for poliovirus to help with the diagnosis.

Since there is currently no treatment for polio, efforts are concentrated on enhancing comfort, accelerating recovery, and avoiding complications. Painkillers, portable ventilators to help with breathing, and moderate exercise (physical therapy) to prevent deformity and loss of muscular function are examples of supportive treatments.

Seek medical help if you experience any symptoms of paralysis or muscle weakness, especially if you also have a fever. You should see a doctor if you have a severe headache and your neck and back are stiff.
