Gulf War Illness & Neurological Disorders


TiredCoastie

Question

Just wondering if anyone has a good list of what exactly is considered to be a Gulf War related neurological condition? I've seen ALS, Parkinson's, and a couple of others. Reason I'm asking is that I wonder if my TIAs and cerebral thromboses could relate back to my deployment to Operation DESERT STORM?

I never considered myself someone who had or would have the Gulf War Syndrome that was all the talk some years ago. I was on a Navy warship in the Red Sea for a few months supporting DESERT STORM a while after the major active combat ceased. Now I have what have been diagnosed as TIAs, very difficult migraines, and pretty consistent tingling and numbness on various patches of my left side at any given time.

As a Gulf War vet with a Southwest Asia Service Medal on my DD214, I'm very interested not only in trying to find answers to my condition but also to establish service connection for TIAs and the thrombosis issue. I'm in the process of compiling a NOD of a recent decision to not SC my TIAs, etc. However, if this could be covered as a presumptive condition, I feel like I need to make that connection on the appeal. My migraines were SC via the initial claim at discharge and just increased to 30%.
