    A "syndrome" is a combination of symptoms, that often appear together, but are not caused by any particular thing ( unlike a virus would cause the flu symptoms) . Because it was found in so many gulf war soldiers, it was named for them. So you might have the symptoms that match Gulf War syndrome, but it is caused by some other thing. Hope you can get the help you need to feel better.

  • Then you don't have Gulf War syndrome

    Gulf War syndrome is just a fancy name for a cocktail of fatigue, lung damage, and headaches.
