Just curious but did they ever find out what was causing the various maladies reported by ground crew?

According to the briefing by Gen Lyon last July, it was an isolated case involving 5 ground crew members at Langley in Dec 2011. He suspected it was a false alarm caused by the combination of exhaust gas inhaled by the ground crew, and the possible factors of dehydration and other general health conditions. As far as I know, similar incidents had not occurred prior and have not occurred thereafter.
