Post-polio syndrome (PPS) is a condition that affects survivors of poliomyelitis, after recovery from an initial paralytic attack of the virus. Typically the symptoms appear 20-40 years after the original infection, at an age of 35 to 60. Symptoms include new or increased muscular weakness, pain in the muscles, and fatigue.
I recommend that you go to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Post-polio_syndrome, as the causes, diagnosis and treatment is explained in detail.
