Customer Question

Hey, I've been feeling not myself lately. I have a hard time with concentration and when I try to remember something, I get this pressure feeling in my head, a soreness in my head, and I cant remember it. I also often lose track of things. Is this a re-occurance of my childhood ADD or is this some new thing I got after my trip to Iraq last year? Remember that there was a burn pit there that caused a lot of people trouble.
