We are here to assist with questions and concerns regarding Adhesive Arachnoiditis, some which may be answered in the information provided here, within these web pages.. Adhesive Arachnoiditis is a disorder which causes severe, chronic, intractable pain.. It is the inflammation of one of the spinal cord coverings (meninges), the middle meninges, the arachnoid and nerve roots that causes Adhesive Arachnoiditis.. This inflammation causes the covering to become sticky , adhering it to the spinal cord and the nerve roots as they exit the spinal canal.. The inflammation causes the nerve roots to become adherent to each other and to the meninges, this is what causes the pain.. Adhesive Arachnoiditis can be progressive in some cases.. It can also cause loss of motor function, numbness, tingling, loss of bladder and bowel function, the sensation of walking on rocks or glass, burning, groin pain and can, in some rare instances, cause paralysis..  ...   where our members continue to enjoy sharing e-mail correspondence via an automated Listserve..
