He said it is some sort of biological agent from the war (either from vaccines or a bio weopon). He is treating me with 200mg of Doxycycline a day. Does anyone know about this. Is this the right treatment ? Has anyone been cured ? Any thought or comments appreciated.
yeah, ive done some research on this. i have heard that all you have to do is be exposed to it. if you came in contact with someone that had it-its possible you contracted it. ive heard of veterans family members getting GWS. and they never left the states-only thier loved ones
