Bulbar polio

Postby IVUN » Tue Jul 12, 2016 1:37 pm

Asked of IVUN: Is there a connection between bulbar polio (resulting in swallowing problems) and hearing loss? Thanks.

Normally no connection but sinus problems can be more common in people with weak bulbar muscles and this can cause problems with hearing.
