: : : Ive been sick for 10 years and i'm trying to get to the bottom of this. Im tired, joint aches, headaches, just plain sick all over. im filling a claim with the VA. IM TOAST
: : I am a Gulf War Vet having spent 4 months in the desert. I was in all three countries during Shield & Storm & SW Asia Cease-fire. I was in oil-fire smoke, took anti-nerve agent, and in the battle fields while shit was still burning & bodies were bleeding. I cannot fit in with society very well and have felt sick with headaches, muscle pain, memory loss & others. I'm calling the VA tommorrow & getting checked again. The first test I had done was in '93. The results of the tests were "lost". Make sure you get copies of the results.
: My husband also went in "93 and his test were lost. Looks like they need to work on their filing system.
My husband has tried to get checked at the VA for years. They refuse even to do any testing, tell us that it's just stress. Did you know stress can make bloody sores? Unexplained fevers? Cause your cloths to fall apart when you wear them a few times?
