Kim, I know how frustrated you must be. ARD is very real and can be very painful.. Did you ever get any of the adhesions taken care of at all, since you are pregnant?  Endometriosis, is one thing that can be a cause of adhesions.  If you can make it through you pregnancy it would be best before you have anything done about the adhesions, but if not I would get to someone who knows about and deals with these things on a regular basis. How far along are you in the pregnancy. There are several Doctors out there that deal specifically with adhesions. Where are you at? Don't be afraid to email me or any of us out there on this site that have been through this.  Right now it sounds like you need to do the best you can to get through this pregnancy and then get to an Adhesion Doctor. My doctor is in Pa, and I will not let anyone else touch me if I suspect I have adhesion problems again. His name is Clarkgerhart( There are also others around that are good.  Also I was thinking that possibly after the pregnancy things will settle down. From my experience it was the other way around. Do you have a good Gyn Doc? 

I can't believe you ended up in a Psych ward.. So many of us get told that it's all in our minds, when it is Definately not.

Don't let them do that to you again!! Hopefully in the meanwhile you can find someone like a good pain doc that know's how do deal with patients that are pregnant and get you through this.. I'm sure you know this, but don't take the over the counter drugs in doses that high, it's dangerous... Talk to us and find, as I said a good Gyn, and or Pain Doc that will listen to you.

Good Luck and I will be Praying for you. Marlene Take Care!!!
