I just received information on this issue, and I immediately saw myself in the various descriptions. I thought I was just getting old, but this answers a lot of questions. I have constant back pain not related to any event which has been with me for 10 years at least. I also have IBS which I have been able to manage. But the only thing I can do for the back pain is just live with it. The VA suggested to keep a pain diary to communicate my symptoms to my doctor. I am glad I found this app. Is there any other Gulf War vets on the forum?
