Hi ckontoh, i have read a bit about the condition. It strikes those afflicted with polio later in their life. Its characterised by increased stiffness in the muscles and also increased muscle weakness. Doctors don't know what causes it and from what i remember it is a source of controversy among doctors. A number of factors such as psychological conditions and wear and tear on the body due to the effects of polio have been blamed for the condition. Fatigue is another symptom and i also remember that it is difficult to treat.
