I had Mirena from Sept 2008 until March 6 2009 when I had it removed. I suddenly began having swelling in my legs, ankles, feet along with terrible leg cramps and joint pain. I knew that the only thing to attribut it to could be the Mirena and found this forum with many others like me. I have had it out several months now and all of the pain is gone however I still have edema every day. The doctors are telling me that it is because I am overweight however, this has been a lifelong struggle for me and never have I had the edema prior to Mirena, except during pregnancy. Has anyone with this problem found a suitable treatment for the edema? Will it go away? I am just 36 and my legs now look like those of a much older woman!
