: I AM GULFWAR VETERAN INTERESTED IN HEARING FROM ANYONE SUFFERING FROM AVASCULAR NECROSIS.
: I am also a Gulf War veteran with Avascular Necrosis. I am 32 years old and in Jan. 2000 I had both my hips replaced. As of today no one has been able to give me a cause for the disease because I have'nt had any truama, don't take steriods, do not consume heavy amount of alcohol, am not a diver, or fit any other profile that put me at risk for AVN. I would like to hear from anyone either suffering from the disease or anyone that may shed some light on a possible connection between AVN and Desert Storm. I have had and continue to have other health problems that prior to the Gulf War were non-exsistant and still have no explanation for any of them.
