What causes acute pancreatitis,fibromyalgia and anxiety disorder?

I have a friend that is veteran from the Persian Gulf War. She has been diagnosed with Hashimoto immune disorder with acute pancreatitis, her thyroid is all most gone, having heart attacks, anxiety disorder, PTSD, fibromialgia and malnourished. Her doctor from the VA said that her era that was enlisted have these problems from the inoculations given to her when she enlisted in the air force. She now has to receive vitamin B injections, iron by IV, potassium and magnesium by IV and hormone replacement therapy. Is there anything else that could cause all of this?? The past four years I have watched her health rapidly decline, she is 38 and in the hospital all the time for prolonged periods of time. How long does she have to live??

Hello,

Her symptoms are caused by an autoimmune disorder, triggered by a possible viral infection. There is usually a genetic predisposition for this kind of clinical condition. We cannot make predictions on how long she is going to live, as this depends on her actual organ (heart, kidney, liver and brain) function.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
