I served 180 days in Iraq/Basra/Saudi,1992/93. I came home sick and the mitary compensates and has given me diagnosis but Drugs seem to be thier solution to everything. As any drugs worked for anyone out there. I can't slepp without a pill. I sleep great during the day but night is a different story. How can someone have a sleeping disorder but sleep great in the day. Any other military or civilians that feel this way.
Welcome to our forum ! Sleeping problems are common in both CFS and fibromyalgia patients. I'm glad you are here because Dr. Klimas, a world renowned expert in CFS, recently told the Miami Herald that they plan on doing studies to "see if there's a difference between Gulf War Illness and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome."
Here is a site dedicated to Gulf War Veterans having GWI. They are treating you for FMS symptoms, but not addressing the cause. I hope you can find some information that will assist you in getting the treatment you deserve.
I thank you for your service and your sacrifices and am so sorry that you returned only to be effected by this illness.
