This Gulf War Syndrome is a longterm multi-symptom disorder that affects approximately one-third of military personnel and civilian workers who were sent to the first Gulf War. Several symptoms are diarrhea, skin rashes, cognitive problems, physical pain, and fatigue. A particular cause has not been defined, however, suggestions by health care professionals and military personnel indicate that one or a combination of events may contribute to this illness. Smoke from burning wells, depleted uranium, Sarin gas, vaccinations, combat stress, antitoxin for nerve agents and pesticides are listed possibilities.

Check with a local VA Regional Center or a veterans service officer for more detailed information and answers to questions regarding this subject.

Enjoy a safe Fourth of July. Speak to you again next week.
