Re: What is...?

Believe me you would know the answer to that question if you had it! There are two types of definitions of gulf war syndrome. The governments side and the sufferers side. However, it is generally a list of ailments that are suffered by anyone that served in the military and some that haven't; and also undeployed and deployed service personnel both suffer from these disabling ailments that attack without warning. There are more problems not listed here and this short list is only suggested symptoms...

What are the symptoms?

Symptoms of Gulf War Illnesses (according to the American Legion)
Chronic Fatigue
Signs and symptoms involving skin (including skin rashes and unusual hair loss)
Muscle pain
Neurologic signs or symptoms (nervous system disorders which could manifest themselves in numbness in one's arm, for instance)
Neuropsychological signs or symptoms (including memory loss)
Signs or symptoms involving upper or lower respiratory system
Sleep disturbances
Gastrointestinal signs or symptoms (including recurrent diarrhea and constipation)
Cardiovascular signs or symptoms
Menstrual disorders
