Boston Gulf War Syndrome Lawyer
Representing Veterans Who Endured Toxic Exposure in Southwest Asia
More than a third of military personnel who served in the Southwest Asia Theater of operations beginning in August 1990 have reported health problems sometimes called Gulf War Syndrome (GWS) or Gulf War Illness (GWI).
Gulf War Syndrome is a chronic, multisymptom illness. Common symptoms and conditions associated with GWS include:
- Joint pain
- Respiratory disorders
- Memory problems
- Cardiovascular disease
- Neurological and psychological problems
- Skin conditions
- Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Cancerous tumors
Exposure to Multiple Toxins
According to the VA, the cause of Gulf War Syndrome remains medically unexplained. Yet members of the military who served in Southwest Asia were exposed to multiple toxins, including:
- Mustard gas
- Sarin gas
- Smoke from burning oil wells
- Smoke from blown up ammo dumps
- Smoke from burning buildings and trash
- Fine particulate sand
- Depleted uranium
- Multiple vaccinations, including those for anthrax
- Fumes from jet and motor fuel
