Abstract:

More than 50,000 troops returned from the Persian Gulf conflicts reporting a myriad of medically unexplained symptoms with no identifiable etiology. While patients who meet the case definition of Gulf War Illness GWI can have a myriad of symptoms, two of the most prevalent and debilitating ones are chronic nasal congestion and fatigue. The purpose of this research effort is to conduct a randomized controlled trial RCT Nasal Irrigation for Chronic Rhinosinusitis and Fatigue in Patients with Gulf War Illness which will evaluate the effects of two different types of nasal irrigation solution compared to a control group for sinus and fatigue symptoms in adults with GWI.
