Post-polio case misdiagnosed as ME
Saturday 20 June 2009
Sandy Yarrow (pictured with husband Eric), has joined a campaign by the British Polio Fellowship to highlight the disease.
UK newspaper the Henley Standard has an article about Mrs Yarrow's experiences:
In 1992, she was incorrectly diagnosed with myalgic encephalomyelitis. It was only when she came across an article in the ME Association’s members magazine that she found out about PPS, a condition few GPs know about.
“It was a flash of realisation for me,” said Mrs Yarrow. “I contacted the consultant who wrote the article and he felt that I definitely had PPS and provided me with information to take to my GP.
“At first they wouldn’t believe that my shoulder was hurting and that I had a breathing problem.”
She was referred to a series of specialists until finally in 2001, with her condition having seriousy deteriorated, she saw a respiratory specialist who confirmed PPS.
