Gulf war Veterans

Are there any PGW vets that have neurological problems? I'm asking due to the Chemical weapons releases during the cease fire. I've had problems since 91 that have just recently been diagnosed as neuropathy with no underlying cause for it. ie Diabetis and such.

This is a general info site that tells you everything about Gulf War Syndrome, which one out of four combat veterans that served back then have it, which can cause neurological problems, among other things:

But this is the website where you can find other Vets who have Gulf War Syndrome, they have forums there, lots of links for info about the Syndrome, and so on:

Keep in mind, though, that while I did not serve in the military, I have some neuropathy, among lots of other serious problems, that come from compression fractures in my spine from being in a car wreck, so if your docs have not done a scan of your spine, of course they should do so.  Hope this helps you out and thank you for your service.
