The gulf war only lasted less than two years, but the effects lasted much longer. Many veterans who fought in this war eventually became diagnosed with a mysterious disease that would become known as Gulf War Syndrome.
This condition had many symptoms and presented itself in many different ways. Fatigue, muscle pain, cognitive problems, rashes, and diarrhea are all among the chronic acute symptoms. Close to 250,000 Gulf War veterans have reported having Gulf War Syndrome. Due to the overwhelming number of cases the VA now recognizes Gulf War Syndrome as a disability that is eligible for disability compensation. There are several options for VA benefits for Gulf War Syndrome.
Gulf War Syndrome is a vicious disease that can be incredibly frustrating to deal with. The still ambiguous cause and undefined treatment make matters even worse. VA benefits for Gulf War Syndrome help to ease the pain, but sadly these benefits are just as hard to get as other VA benefits.
