VA does not formally recognize it as a medical condition.; instead they like to call it "chronic multisymptom illness", "undiagnosed illnesses", or another common one "Medically Unexplained Chronic Multisymptom Illnesses" also known as "MUCMI" for short. Common symptoms include unexplained fatigue, joint pain, digestive issues such as GERD, IBS, respiratory issues, memory problems, and much more.
