Hi I am so very concerned with the health of my moms fiance. He has gulf war syndrome. He almost looks like he is going to die and I want answers. He is depressed, has bowel problems, throws up regularly,his body is swelling up, can't sleep, falls all the time, his legs just give out. I hate seeing him in this state, he has so many other things wrong with him, I don't know everything because I don't live with then anymore, but when I did he wasn't half as bad as he is now. Just over a years time he looks like he is standing on deaths door. He has reciently been twitching too. No doctors will help him and one even had the audacity to tell him there was no hope...I want answers and soon....I don't want to see the man I call dad die right before my eyes and my mom has asked for help many times and no on will help her. She loves him with all her heart and watches him dwindle away into nothing each day.. I can't even describe what he has become...he is almost in a vegetable state. The doctors he does see have him drugged beyone belief for the pain, and that isn't helping, seems to make him worse. Please help us find answers...you are my or our last hope...
