Jaw pain, whiplash, anxiety, arm numbness, muscle weakness, shortness of breath, feel really weak/fatigued, lack of motivation, feel faint, pleasehelp?
Wow, too complex: Mentioning whiplash suggests u had an injury? Whiplash is graded based upon the extent of "systemic symptoms".

See below: The polio virus attacks the nerves in the spinal cord that supply the muscles. Called motor nerves. Polio does not affect the nerves that deal with sensation.

It is not a reactivation of the virus. ...Read more
