Can the pain come and go with abdominal adhesions?

In brief: Not directly

Adhesions do not in and of themselves cause pain.
They can lead to pain if they are causing obstruction, wherein the dilating bowel above the obstruction distends and is painful and cramping. Pain may be present if there's traction caused by an adhesion, usually causing pain with twisting of the body - not very common. That's about it. Good luck.
