Hi I'm new to this but must thank you all for all your posts which have helped me realise I could be right. I had mirena fitted in Sept 2011. After 3 days had severe cramping. Gp gave me antibiotics and it went away. Then in November I had severe pain and cramps in my left foot. Diagnois was Plantar facisitis. Then I got it in other foot. Then I got severe back pain. Back to GP who thinks problems all nerve related and coming from my back. I also feeling really unwell, nausea and fatigue. I went to Osteopath twice. Still no better. Then in March 2012. I could barely walk with severe weakness, tingling and pain, mainly in calves. Then everything just seemed to go completely numb. I ended up in hospital having tests for MS as they felt brain to spine problem. I had no reflex,s at all. Scans came back clear no MS no nerves pressing on spine. I've been tested for everything Lupus, tyhroid but all back negative. Just after my release hospital in march i went to my GP and Gyn. She really good doc. I told her I felt this all some how related to Mirena? she said NOT never heard any these problems being related Mirena. But I decided I wanted it out anyway. Had few problems with removal was going to have to go hospital for removal but after the first attempt it had moved and felt like was digging in me so when I went back she managed to remove. Then recently I started doing my own research and found all you people suffering same things. I printed some posts and went back to her. She said you can find anything you want on the net! I was so disheartened and came home crying. As well as the pain, tingling and fatigue. I also get tingling in my tongue? Was wondering anyone else had this? I'm four
months post removal and still same problems me hands burn and one time felt like my legs would explode with pressure and pain. I feel sick every morning similar to morning sickness. And have to take tramadol and naproxyn to get through the day.
I can still hardly walk due to weakness in my muscles at back of my legs. Prior to all this was fit and well and enjoyed salsa dancing. Now I can't do anything, even play ball with my little boy who's 6.
