I am a Gulf Vet and currently have a claim in for IBS. It has been documented and diagnosed by VA doctors and no cause has been able to be determined after every type of test the University hospital (University of Rochester, which has a medical school, the local VA clinic contracts with them) was able to come up with. I filed the claim online recently stating that I am a Gulf Vet, I have been diagnosed by VA with this problem and according to the list of presumptive illnesses attributed to Gulf Service I should be service connected, rated and receive compensation from the date that I first sought treatment from the VA for IBS type issues.

thanks all for the info. finished putting together the IBS/gastro folder in chronological order from 1986-present. it is quite a disturbing issue on/off so i'm gonna submit claim for it. they may say it is secondary to MS, i have no idea.
