Wondering in NJ,
You might qualify for the free treatment trials underway at 20 VA sites, including the one in East Orange, NJ. The studies are investigating the effect of antibiotics, exercise, and behavioral treatments for Gulf War illnesses.
The number for more information is 1-800-749-8387 (VA Gulf War Information HelpLine) or 1-800-248-8005 (NJ Gulf War Research Center).
