am talking about the abnormal,
worse than a migraine, type of headache from 2-butoxyethanol. Is
it a pituitary headache?
are some examples from the Exxon Valdez oil spill cleanup
1-The headaches an EVOS
'bioremediation' worker has are very frequent in last several
years... at the back of the head and it runs down his neck. *
2-Another young native
woman who only delivered supplies and lunches to the beach
workers has severely debilitating headaches: She has to be in
a dark, quiet room for days - the pain is so severe. Being a
mother of 2 little boys, and trying to work, too, that makes
it quite difficult for her. They went away for awhile, but are
back again she told me April, 2004. She said she also notices
short term memory loss which makes counting change at the bank
were she works ... difficult to say the least. She has good
medical coverage, being a Native in Alaska, and her doctors
have given her a year's prescription of very, very strong pain
medication. (Sadly this could harm her more.)
headaches: "Ever since 1990 I have had
headaches and they are getting worse and worse. It is a deep
hurt - I can't describe it - at the back of the head,
sometimes down my neck and across my shoulders; also in my
eyes (I'm legally blind now). I can feel it 'thump' thump' It
is really miserable." Heart
beats very rapidly, too.
I have found similarly
among those of the Gulf War I vets:

comment by a GWS vet: "I still have these piercing
headaches, feels like burning, shocks....something like
that... all I know, it's not a normal headache."

military comment: "Hey everyone! I'm curious. Many of us
talk about having headaches. But, I haven't found anyone yet
that described the type of headaches I have. Mine are not like
a normal headache. They feel like piercing, sharp, burning in
spots. That's the best I can describe. Sometimes I get the
pounding hurt really bad type, but for the most part they're
very different from anything I ever had before. Anybody out
there experiencing the same thing? Sometimes I don't know
whether to believe if it is all gulf related or if there may
be a damaged nerve thing going on. I do experience a lot of
other symptoms, muscle & joint pain, rashes, GERD (acid
reflux), tremors, and tired
all the darn time. but, these headaches are like the
worst. Anybody out there with the same type of headaches?

Puller's headaches, "I served in swa with
the Marine Corps from jan91-june91. after returning to the
states, I had a few very severe migraine headaches that
brought me to my knees. The headaches went away and I then
started to have heart palpitations with a very high heart
rate. * I was placed in the hospital once for one week with
the doctors being unable to explain why I was having the
palpitations. I was recently given beta-blockers in a attempt
to control it."
"I had a bothersome pain in the back of my head behind my
left ear. Almost all the in the back of my head. It became
severe and my balance has gotten much worse, my memory was bad
since the storm, but now is absolutely terrible day to day,
and I can't focus on anything. Seems like all of my symptoms
are multiplied by 10 since this has happened."
It is true that the gulf war vets were exposed to 2-butoxyethanol
and diethylene glycol monobutyl ether. *
are signs of chemical overexposure in the first place?
All harmed by 2-butoxyethanol family of chemicals should have too
many immature red blood cells. This is the
Gulf war vets may additionally comment on forums
I am now looking for input from the CFS
as I believe they have similar harm - that their fatigue may
be the same type
... and that it is findable:
Red blood cells being prematurely destroyed ... resulting in
too many IMMATURE red blood cells is a type of fatigue that
has been fooling our country for over 50 years. It can be
found with a retic
ratio - 2.5
days after exposure, and any time thereafter.
It is the identifying mark of 2-butoxyethanol's
harm Plus a lot of
other odd symptoms such
