our medic and friends would bet on how high my blood pressure. I was bitten by something that caused me feverlost of appetite and sweats. My body started to hurt like I had been beaten with a bat, it started with my hands. In CONUS they insited it was carpal tunnel, even when I would say (no tingling, just pain).
A couple of people in my family has diabetes. I never had it. I was in excellent shape. I have
forgetfulness, I still have sweats,body pains everyday,and more on a personal basis: almost immediatly I started to have burning feelings after ejeculation, it would last for a while, it would give my wife continuous yeast infections. Little by little I have become almost impotent, still burn and my sperm is like rice grains at times. None of thess have been aknowledge or related to desert storm... WHY? it has ruin my life.. I was retired in a hurry from Walter Reed, back in 92 for Back injuries (not related) and various pains which I have no doubt are related. I had a great REP from DAV that helped me. I'm been taking care od by the VA for treatment, but nothing fromm desert related is aknowledge. I can't seem to make anyone understand it's related. WHY? (forgot to mention) my gums bleed each time I brush, even though I have been under dental care, it still happens. There has been some tests which I wasn't able to participate because of all the MEDS I take.. Where is this GOING? I dont know. Just wanted to share my pain and saddness with someone or stranger
