What a coincidence, that's my husband's name too. Anyway yes you should seek help at a VA Hospital because civilian Dr's do not know what to look for. Some will even look at you like you're nuts because the symptoms are all so common. They all can be treated but the question is "For how Long and will they come back or disappear forever"? I think you already know the answer to that. Get your husband to file a claim for Gulf War Illness, get him a physical and also the most important is to get him on the National Registry in Washington DC. You can get all this information by calling 800-497-6261. You need to do this right away and do not give up your fight for his disability. If you would like to e-mail me, I can give you some excellant sites to read about GWS. Just contact me at Tndeer1@aol.com and I will help all I can. "God Bless". Freda
