A place to discuss ARD and CAPPS.
Adhesion Related Disorder (ARD): is symptoms related to adhesions.
Adhesions are abnormal and connect organs and tissues that are not normally connected. They are usually made up from scar tissue that is a result from surgeries.
Complex Abdomino-Pelvic and Pain Syndrome (CAPPS): is having the symptoms from ARD and then having overlapping conditions such as chronic pelvic pain (CPP), interstitial cystitis (IC), Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), or Endometriosis.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BRINGING THIS ISSUE TO LIGHT, I’M A (ARD) AND A ( CAPPS) SUFFER’ER FOR 30 PLUS YEARS NOW, WITH 8 ABDOMINAL SURGERIES UNDER MY BELT, AND JUST TODAY,I WENT FOR ANOTHER TRIGGER INJECTION UNDER SEDATION, FOR NERVE PAIN AND DAMAGE, THESE LONGS YEARS OF SURGERY AND MEDS I CAN’T TAKE, AND INJECTIONS I DON’T REALLY BELIEVE THAT WORK, HAS BROUGHT ME TO SOME VERY DARK PLACES. AND THIS IS WHY IT IS IMPORTANT TO ME TO BRING THIS ISSUE UP, I HIT A CRISIS POINT A FEW WEEKS BACK AT THAT DOCTOR’S OFFICE, AND A TEAM WAS CALLED IN, I WAS SO SCARED !!! WELL AFTER GOING HOME THAT DAY, I WENT ON THE COMPUTER AND FOUND THAT MY CRISIS COULD OF BEEN AVOIDED IF I WAS AWARE OF WHAT I WAS SUFFERING FROM (ARD) AND (CAPPS) WHICH HAS NEVER BEEN MENTIONED TO ME IN ALL OF THE YEARS OF MY SUFFERING !!! THIS SUBJECT IS TOOOO HUSH HUSH, AND I’M READY TO TALK ABOUT IT. DEE

I am so sorry to hear about the crisis you had. It is so important for each of us to find healthcare providers who will search to find out what is causing our pain. Having the right diagnosis means everything because then we can work with our providers to set a plan in place to help ease the pain.
We are happy that you have found The Pain Community and our online chat community. You will never have to feel alone again. You are in a community that will provide you the needed support that we all need when living with pain.

Wow, Dee, that crisis sounds scary. I have endometriosis, chronic pelvic pain and related GI issues.
ARD sounds horrible and far worse than the endometriosis adhesions and scarring that I’ve dealt with that connect/constrict some of my organs.
I’m so happy that you have found TPC where you will be able to speak freely and find support of others who live with pain.

This ARD & CAPPS sounds so scary. I am happy to meet you, Deep. I love to make new friends.
I have a list of pain issues but the one that sounds a little similar is the struggle I have with IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome). I know the pain that can come with the muscles cramping has made me feel as if I was going to pass-out before. Thankfully my doctor and I found a medication that keeps the pain and cramping at bay for the most part now.
