What is Gulf War Veterans Illness

Additionally known as Gulf War Syndrome, a significant number of acute and/or chronic symptoms have been linked to Gulf War Syndrome. These include fatigue, muscle pain, cognitive problems, insomnia, rashes and gastrointestinal problems. At least a third of the nearly 700,000 U.S. veterans who served in the 1991 Gulf War are afflicted with enduring chronic multi-symptom illness, a condition with serious consequences.
