: : : Has anyone in the Gulf War experienced this: Two years ago my gulf war son's leg mid distance from ankle to knee opened with a very deep hole. Just erupted-doesn't remember ever bumping it. Doctors can't seem to take care of it. Had about every test done to it. Now wound much wider and shallower and more painful. Would like to know of anyone with similair problem and how it was treated. Many thanks. Karen
My husband was in the Gulf. He regularly gets large sores on his feet and legs. Most look like burns or raw blisters, some get very deep. The VA doctors tell us that it's stress! The only way I've found to help it is keep it clean, and uncovered as much as possible.
: MY HUSBAND WOKE UP TWO YEARS AGO WITH A HOLE IN HIS LEG MIDWAY BETWEEN HIS KNEE AND ANKLE ON HIS LEFT LEG. AT FIRST THE DOCTOR THOUGHT IT WAS FROM A SPRIDER. THEY HAVE DONE VIEN SURGERY, SKIN GRAPH, THEY EXCISES IT AND STITCHED IT TOGETHER BUT YET IT KEEPS OPENING UP. THE DOCTOR CANNOT FIGUER OUT WHAT IT IS CAUSED FROM. WE DON'T KNOW WHERE TO GO FROM HERE. THE DOCTOR SAID THAT HE WAS GOING TO LOOK INTO THE POSSIBLE CONNECTION OF THE GULF WAR. IF YOU HAVE ANY INFORMATION ON THINGS TO TRY PLEASE LET ME KNOW.
: : sounds simmialr to whoccured to me . I had to pay to have area exized and closed and then after that it reopened. I have since finnally got it closed but I wonder also, the doctoers said it looked similar to a brown reclouse spider bite but I am not sure scott
