When you served, were you exposed to any nasty toxic stuff that might be doing this to you now?

I was vaccinated against small pox, anthrax, given multiple chemical training sessions that included sarin and vx gases, used malaria medications, had to inject myself with my diazepam and chemical agent meds once, since I never got sick I stopped reporting for the flu and pneumonia vaccine. Had a few other vax but I don't know what they were as they are blacked out on my service record.

A few times I could have sworn I saw a few dust clouds that were orange tinted but it's the desert, most dust clouds are.

Because of all the stuff burned in open air in the desert that dust is known contains lots of toxins, including aluminum, lead, manganese, strontium and tin.

Since your docs are still scratching their heads, I'm just going to make one more comparison to Hans' borreliosis (lyme disease):

Justin I feel really bad for you, I don't know what to say and I have no advice to offer. Just know that I am thinking of you and I hope things work out differently for you. ((()))
