Thanks for replying Maggie! We're on it. Luckily my girlfriend works as a phlebotomist in a lab. Also getting medicaid now and went to see my first outside the VA provider. He gave me Duragesic 50 mg patches and in an hour or so, 75% pain relief!!!!!! He's working on what is causing these problems now! By the way, my girlfriend and I were wondering who you were and how you know about specifics on the GWI problems. Thanks for helping out!! :bouncing: Matt S.
