Veterans Disabilities: Gulf War Syndrome

Following the Persian Gulf War many soldiers returned home experiencing the onset of a myriad of unexplained conditions. 645,550 troops were deployed to the Persian Gulf during the war and according to the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), nearly 1 in 5 display symptoms recognized as presumptive illnesses related to Gulf War Syndrome. Some of these illnesses include:

  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
  • Fibromyalgia (Widespread muscle pain, Insomnia, Morning stiffness, Headache, Memory problems)
  • Gastrointestinal Disorders (Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Functional Dyspepsia, Functional Abdominal Pain Syndrome)
  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • Muscle & Joint Pain
  • Menstrual Disorders
  • Neurological & Psychological Problems
  • Skin Conditions
  • Respiratory Disorders

If you were deployed to the Persian Gulf area from 1990 to present day and have a history of suffering from conditions related to any of the above, you can go to your local VA – at no cost to you – to receive a Gulf War Registry health exam. You may also be entitled to receive monthly veterans disability benefits.
