Your knees go after a while. Walking on steel all the time. Guy on my boat (attack submarine) was on his last sea tour -16 years in and was having a really hard time getting around.

Personally my hearing was affected - lost 30/40% in one ear. It probably affects everyone differently.

Not trying to hijack OPs thread, but no they didn't make you take any thing. You could have on your own I suppose.

OP mentioned sleep being something that everyone needed. Your mental psyche was probably more affected by exhaustion. I remember times we'd be at sea and I'd only sleep for 4 maybe 5 hours every other day for a couple months at a time.
