My brother served in the Persian Gulf. He came back with all the symtems of Gulf War Syndrome. He has had 3 children. The middle child, his only boy, has had a constant struggle to stay healthy his whole life. ( colds, flu, ear infections etc.) He couldn't sit up. Can't walk, complains of pain in legs and foot, weighs only 23lbs., has severely crossed eyes and doesn't say a word. He can hear, he just doesn't talk. He was recently diagnosed with a Syrinx...?? ( a cyst in the spinal cord caused by brain fluid leaking).
My question is has anyone else out there encountered this same disease??
There seems to be no other explantation.
Any information would be extremely helpful.
