PPOD Syndrome Screening Questionnaire
Because of the wide variability in symptomatic and clinical presentation from one PPOD patient to the next it can be quite difficult for those unfamiliar with this disorder to sort through the maze of seemingly unrelated complaints and make sense of their condition. To assist you, the suspected PPOD syndrome patient, in determining whether you might be a candidate for a PPOD syndrome examination, we have developed a screening questionnaire that profiles symptoms representative of a “typical” PPOD syndrome patient, which can be used as a starting point to help identify those who are most likely suffering from the effects of this disorder. The use of this questionnaire has been found to be of great help in identifying and differentiating those who are most likely to be PPOD syndrome patients and who should undergo a PPOD focused examination to confirm its existence from those who are not likely to be mechanically induced PPOD syndrome patients.
In completing this questionnaire, read through each of the 5 sections below carefully and identify the symptoms that you are now experiencing, or, have had in the recent past. In the case of the listed surgical procedures, click on any that you have had performed at any time before. Check the appropriate box for each relevant symptom or procedure in each of the 5 sections. When finished, click on the “Total” button at the bottom of the questionnaire to obtain your Final Score. This number will determine the relative likelihood that you are suffering from the effects of the mechanically induced PPOD syndrome. Please note that many of the symptoms described in this questionnaire may represent other conditions requiring appropriate evaluation and treatment. It is for this reason that the identification of any symptoms listed in this questionnaire should be followed by professional evaluation to more clearly established their cause. If however, your score indicates that you may be suffering from the mechanically induced PPOD syndrome an evaluation to confirm or rule out its presence is clearly warranted. If the PPOD syndrome is confirmed, effective treatment at the Pelvic Pain and Organic Dysfunction Treatment Center, is available.
