I wish I knew also what this gulf war syndrome is? I am injured also with a whole host of additional problems as well. This illness is really bad and I am so injured that basically I am not able to work anymore. I don't know why they call it CFS? I mean how do you get GWS from CFS? My whole body is so messed up that I can't even clean my self properly due to the fatigue, joint pains, internal organ pains, headaches, breathing problems, and this weird arthritus and this is just the tip of the iceberg! Not to mention nausia on exertion, dizziness, uncoordated movements, mental status changes, paranoid feeling, headaches that move around, and feeling overly hot to the point that I can't work at all because I become disabled and then it is impossible for me to work in this condition! Also, I am very hot tempered that is potentially violent, etc. I don't know what happened to me while I was in the military but I am very messed up now. I even overeat to the point that I have to overeat just to feel half way normal. What is this illness?? Whatever it is, it is hell!!! I have almost died countless times just from the sleep apnea alone where I stop breathing while sleeping at night. I also get chest pains and have trouble breathing normally and my heart slows down... This illness is so weird!!! Anyone else have similar troubles??
