: Has any of the older childnen of Gulf vets had the same problems as the Vets themshelfes.
: I am married to a Gulf Vet and we have two children one age 13 and other age 9. Our 9 year old was born one week after he was deployed. Our 9 year old has severe asthma and our 13 year old was diagnosed with "Dysautonomia". No their father is not suffering with neither one of these but both children complain about muscel and joint pain just like my husband and myself. What is going on. Asthma is a common ailment but envident with gulf war syndrome. Dysautonomia on the other hand is a very rare illness and we have not as of yet figured out why this has happened to her. Dysautonomia is a miscommunication between the brain and the heart. Her blood pressure dropped while on the tilt table from 120/76 to 0 (zero). Then she passes out. I am only now starting to think this has something to do with GWI.
