Cluster Headaches

Posted by @john434 in Brain & Nervous System, Oct 19, 2012

I got injured years ago in the first gulf war. The headaches started but wasnt that bad. The last 2 years have really been real bad hitting 40-60 times a day various places on my head lasting 3-10 minutes feeling like a sharp stabbing. Recently had a MRI with and with out contrast and was normal and EEG was normal. Anyone have any ideas or can help me

Have you looked into other online communities of Gulf War veterans or resources for Gulf War veterans that are struggling with these types of headaches? I seem to remember the phrase "Gulf War Syndrome" years ago that could be just a gross generalization of symptoms but I do seem to remember discussion about neurological issues with some veterans- may it be from their physical environment or prolonged stress. I guess the other question I have (since I personally struggle with blood sugar issues) is have you gotten looked at for possible diabetes or diabetes type causes of these headaches?

Thank you for replying back to me. Yes I got urine test and blood test and everything came back normal except NO2 little low. As for Gulf War Syndrome its been a real struggle dealing with the VA.
