Hi this jftbus and I recently joined this web site to find out info on other soldiers that may have had health problems from desert storm. I suffer from serious depression, night sweats, anger issues, fatigue, muscle and joint pain. I am working on trying to get disability and have visited my VA hospital. I was hoping to find some of my fellow soldiers to see if any of them have the same problems. If anyone out there has info for me on making my chance for disabilty any easier that would be great, also to help me find some of my fellow soldiers. I was with HQ 4-229 AAHR in desert storm and we deployed from Germany. Again thanks for any help that you may be able to give me. I do not have any pics as they have been misplaced through the years.

Have you contacted the VA or the Gulf War registry to do the gulf war physical? I have very similar symptoms and have been dealing with this for nearly 20 years ... you've got to start somewhere and I would advise starting with the gulf war registry and the registry exam.
