This Wednesday we’ll interview Dr. Laila Abdullah of the Roskamp Institute about her research into Gulf War Illness. GWI is a multi-symptom disorder affecting one fourth of military veterans of the First Persian Gulf War (1990-91). GWI veterans have an extended spectrum of complaints including fatigue, cognitive impairments, diffuse musculoskeletal pain, gastrointestinal dysfunction and sleep abnormalities. The heterogeneity and complexity of GWI has led to difficulties in diagnosis and treatment.
