Vaccine Linked To Gulf War Syndrome

The medical report noted there was a "high incidence" of osteoporosis in Gulf War veterans.

It is shocking that 72% of the medical records of soldiers who served in the First Gulf War have been lost, so in most cases it is impossible for the person to find out what s/he has been injected with. There are now many medical studies showing that veterans have died or suffered severe illnesses as a result, and have babies who are still-born or children with disabilities. Yet the government continues to insist that Gulf War Syndrome does not exist.

Please read these...(at least one)

Thank you...

The reason I'm posting this is because today at the VA hospital I was diagnosed with osteoporosis!!

I served 8 months in the Gulf during Gulf War 1, "Desert Storm". My medical records from my service are "lost"...

For the last 6 yrs I have had many of the symptoms, depression, anxiety, muscle pain etc...

And now at 41, and I'm a man btw, I have osteoporosis...That isn't normal!!

Looks like Lt. Col. Graham Howe maybe right, eh?

This post is not meant to garner sympathy for me, but to point out that Gulf War Syndrome is still an issue that should be discussed.
The government still refuses to admit there is such a thing as "Gulf War Syndrome".
Yet they do research on GW vets at the VA hospital, I'm up for my second session next month.

Gulf War Syndrome is real. U.S. military members were/are used as guinea pigs for untested vaccines. People need to know this. The press needs to get on this story, but I doubt they will.

Join the military, see the world, kill some people, and become a guinea pig for the pharmaceutical industry backed by the government.

If this is not proof that the gov and the pharmas' are scratching each others backs I don't know what is.

(same goes for the marijuana issue)

Hey anok, would it be possible for you to get a second opinion from a doctor without telling him you were in the military? Maybe tell the doctor that you think you may have been exposed to radioactive material from somewhere and see if your illness is consistent with radiation poisoning. As far fetched as that sounds, if you haven't read my DU thread here, you might want to have a look. A second opinion might be the way to go man.

Also, are you 100% service connected? I think you can get another opinion outside the VA system adn they will pay for it, but I may be wrong. If you do not mind telling us, what vaccines did you get?

I don't think it's DU Twitchy, I was in the Navy so not very close to where DU ammo was being used.
I was kind of confused about this for a few yrs, how could I have GWS symptoms if caused by DU, when I was on a boat? But then I hear about the vaccine theory and now the osteoporosis thing.
I was starting to think my illness was all in my head, but now I know it's not.
This might sound strange, I don't want to be sick, but this news is kind of a relief. No more wondering WTF, you know what I mean? It's better to know, good or bad, than sit in limbo wondering with no answers.

And there are a lot like me, the guy in the links above didn't even ship out to Iraq, but he did get the shots.

Also Gulf Vets are being found to have high levels of Squaline anti-bodies which are used in experimental vaccines.

Fred T... One of the big problems is my medical records, along with about 80% of GW vets, have been "lost" (DOD term lol) so no way of really knowing what vaccines I was given. There were a lot of them...
From what I've read though, we were given anthrax vaccine, botulinum toxoid, pyridostigmine bromide...
But like I said no way of knowing for sure.
So no way of proving my condition was caused by my service.

A second opinion is a good idea, they (VA) are sending me to a bone specialist so I'll wait and see what they say first.

Thanx for the replies guys!!

I guess no one else is interested in this?

Where are the "support our troops crowd" now?

Must be fair weather supporters eh?

They use DU in deck guns by chance? what type of ship/boat were ya on?

I don't believe so Cole, on the deck guns...

It's the vaccines given not the DU ammo IMHO...Or maybe both, there are a number of different symptoms GW vets have, all bundled under the name Gulf War Syndrome.

Vaccinations though is the only explanation for people who were not near DU ammo who have GWS symptoms.

I was on the U.S.S. Saratoga (aircraft carrier) and worked nights on the flight deck with a squadron.

Thanx for asking...

Well, ANOK, Hope ya get better

I would try to get a second opinion from an outside source that is not VA or military related in in you might have to pay for it. It'll cost alot but it might be worth it in the end. You know the VA is now revamping thier vets and being more strict on who gets care for certain things......

There could be more wrong, but they do not wanna let you know or whatever.

IMO, get a second opinion man...could be better, could be worse but at least you will know.

What about that crap they coat the tarmac with? If I remember right, that stuff is pure evil and kicks up a fine dust everytime a plane lands or takes off.

There have been a number of illnesses and symptoms that have been "linked" to the (untested unauthorized by the CDC /AMA) vaccine that we had to take before getting on the birds to play in the sandbox. There have also been studies done that "link" the "flea collars" that we had.
Unfortunately, everytime there has been "evidence" of these links, the goverment and military are very quick to discredit them.
I also have had many bouts of deppression, anxiety, muscle pains weakness etc. Every time that I have it look into by a doctor they alsways attribute the problems to different maladies and never the same ones.
It does beg the question why would this be the case? Is it another case of the military using it's troops for experiments?

It pains me greatly to see that true patriots like ANOK, kenshiro2012, and thousands of other brave veterans are being denied treatment or given the run-around now that they have served their country and are suffering greatly as a result. 80% of medical records of GW1 vets 'lost'? I read that destroyed, purposely.

These people's lives are not disposable! What is happening (has happened) to our government? It is worse than a crime syndicate! Even the mob takes care of its own. Even a soulless corporation has an obligation to care for injured workers. The corporate criminal ideology that has taken over the USA must be voted out! Our government can not continue to be run on an Enron format!

My husband records all it has is a letter that said that he was in the first Gulf war but all the pills and injections he received are not in his medical records. My husband always carried them with him and he still have the originals.

My husband said that he had to sign a document before taking any of the stuff, because they were experimental.

He also suffered from side effects from taking them right after but he has not shown any other effects since he came back and is been almost 14 years.

i truly believe a lot of the biotech tested in gw1 was created to respond to the technology featured at the linx is radiation tecvhnology and the stupid tend to blow it off as paranoia, tv heads i mean, but most people now have something from the gulf war, brought back over as contagion by the unfortunates of the first bush war for oil, and now that its spread, think of this: charged ion plasmas in the skies+ mycoplasmas in your body = satanik kontrol 101 kids...

Thanx for replying guys and gals!

Marg, yes I am kicking myself right now, ouch!, for not keeping my shot records. But like your Husbands the experimental vaccines were probably not on there anyway. Have him get checked for osteoporosis because it is usually not checked for in men, just in case.

Kenshiro, yes it seems there a lot of different causes of Gulf War illness, along with the many different symptoms.

Twitchy, I never thought of that. In fact the flight deck by the end of the cruise had lost all it's "non-skid" (the black stuff) and had turned red with rust. I met the Admiral of the fleet whilst he was inspecting

Sporty, yes I will do that. The VA seems very reluctant to even approach the
Gulf War illness problem. I have been mentioning my symptoms for yrs, muscle pain and weakness, chronic fatigue, chronic upper and lower back pain, loss of memory etc...But they don't seem to take me seriously.
The only thing they were interested in was the mental health stuff and they were quick to diagnose me as Bi-Polar. I went through a year of hell on their medications which made me worse. I developed an uncontrollable temper....
Now I'm off those meds I'm a lot better. No temper but still have some depression and anxiety. I'm not bi-polar though, I have a friend who is so I know what that's like.

Icarus Rising, thanx for the support! I agree 100%. Your military career doesn't end when you get discharged anymore, it's with you for life.

Billder, thanx for the links I will be sure to read them and post on it later. Looks very interesting.

Anok are you getting letters from the government in relation to the complains of the gulf syndrome?

My husband gets once in a while letters from the government telling him about the findings of the investigations in regard to the issue.

The letters are vague and it points more to the government not finding anything to link the gulf syndrome to anything they did, occurs.

Yes I have told my husband to have himself check out but he is a "man" and he is always putting it aside.

Beside he is very well fit and keeps his diet and exercise regime just like it if was still active duty.

I will try again to get him to get see a doctor.

Hmmm, no I have haven't had any letters regarding GWS. I am registered with the Gulf War registry to.

Could you let me know what department they are coming from?
You can PM it to me...

I was very physically fit myself 'till a couple of yrs ago. I was a bike messenger in my last job, riding an average of 60 miles a day in the city, mostly sprinting.
Now I have problems just walking from my back and joints.

Prob is nowadays doctors won't check for things unless you almost force them, especially the VA. I guess if you can afford a top doctor it's a diff story.
I have been complaining about my condition for the last couple of years, but was just ignored.
They didn't take an x-ray until I said my back hurt when I breathed.
It was then they noticed my bones and had me checked for osteo.

I'm not gonna let them blow me off again...
