yes I have had it since 1975 and I stay so fatigued and nauseated I cant do much at all. and I hurt all over from arthritis caused by it. The Atlanta college of rheumatology found in a study that it causes arthritis. The VA says I didnt have it at the time I contracted it in 1975 but their study found arthritis does not show up because of it for years later. And I have to take Percocet for pain and ambien for pain. I know I got it from the jet guns but the VA says that cant happen. Its been shown that 30% of post Vietnam vets were infected by them. THATS A WHOLE LOT OF MEN. Who has had their lives changed forever by the armed forcesView Thread
