Get copies of all of your records. Also, dig out your old service medical records and look for anything related to a back injury. It never hurts to pile on extra evidence in your favor. If you have happened to see a private physician for your back, you might want to ask them for an IMO linking everything together.
Thanks. Roll Tide!

How much weight is pain medication given for secondary conditions given?
The note about the pain meds was just info as part of treatment for the back along with the steroid shots. It indicates that there is a problem or at least the PC Dr. thinks so.
But in reality I don't fully understand your question.
I realize that the meds represent treatment not cause etc. But it does indicate a problem. I was only giving all the info that I recalled. VA also issued me a Tens unit for my back.
