    You won't be able to take meds with you. However if you have pain or issues while you are there you can go to medical, what the Doc gives you is between you and him. You may get something you may not. My concern is did you mention that you are prone to back pain at MEPS? If you haven't been yet be sure to mention it, it may be nothing but better to be save than sorry.

    It is possible. You need to tell your recruiter this information, and provide him or her with all medical records pertaining to the back pain. If you don't disclose it, they can and most likely will discharge you later on for fraudulent enlistment. Always best to be honest up front and go through the necessary steps.
    You can meet the standard, or you can set the standard. It's your choice.

    Having just completed my 3rd back surgery while on active duty I will tell you that you need to be upfront about any issues you have before you join. I was completely upfront when I joined stating I had childhood asthma and I was let in and have always disclosed it on every medical questionaire ever received.

    I didn't have back problems when I joined and if I did, I may have been disqualified. But realize this, being in the military is only a short time in your life. Your health is forever. My back injuries were due to active duty mishaps but I will be suffering with them forever.

    Don't take your back problems lightly. You will be doing a lot more than just standing around that will hurt your back during your service. In other words, disclose it as it could keep you from having to deal with injuries well after you have left service.
