A Georgia mother said her toddler went to bed sick and woke up paralyzed from the neck down.
It’s the latest in a series of mysterious illnesses that are baffling doctors. Two young patients were recently treated at Scottish Rite after they fell ill and then woke up partially paralyzed.
Doctors are still working to figure out what causes acute flaccid myelitis, or AFM, but they tell Channel 2 Action News in Georgia that the rare condition is similar to polio, in that it can cause muscle weakness or partial paralysis.
