Until a few months ago, I never associated my seven year old daughters illness with the Gulf War. My husband was a Marine in the Gulf War. His unit was a LAV unit in Kuwait. Anyway, in 1993 I beacame pregnant and had a normal pregnancy. A little while after my daghter was born, my husband started having bad stomach pains with diarrea. He is tired a lot and has dark circles under his eyes. My daughter seemed to always have a cold or some sort of infection; however lately it seems as though everything is going wrong with her. She was diagnosed with a learning disability, ADD, Mitral Valve Prolapse, Irregular heartbeats (PVC), sensativity to odors and noise, dark circles under her eyes, lose of appetite, headaches, severe stomach pains (occasionally w/vomitting)and some leg pains. Her spouts with stomach pains and headaches are coming closer together . Maybe six times a month. Her physcian thought she had a stomach virus that she could not fight off; however, since all these symptoms did not come out until this past year, I started to think this is more than a coincedence. These symptoms have to have the same underlying cause. So, I've been doing some research and found a doctor in California who successfully treats some GWI's. He has sent my peditrician a test kit (test for mycoplasma and other bacteria) and we are going to send it back soon. I hope this will be a answer for my daughter and husband. They both have been through so many invasive tests with no results. Does anyone have any other possible routes I should take in finding a cure for them. The VA can't test them until late December and I don't want to wait that long. I am so scared that my daughter has had this growing inside of her for seven years and noone will be able to stop it from getting worse. I would really appreciate any help you can give me. Tami
