I literly thought I was loosing my mind until I came across this forum. I had Mirens inserted Jan 10,2010.These past 2 yrs have been a complete nightmare. I have been to the doctor about 30 times in the past year and a half complaining about headaches, insomnia, hear palpatations, abdominal pain, gas and bloating, numbness in my hips and legs, lumps in my breast and auxilla, huge ovarian cysts that could be felt by pressing on my abdomen, vision changes, constipation, acne, weight gain of 25 lbs in 2 yrs, nausea, depression, major mood swings, a complete lack of sex drive...the list goes on. Since I am a nursing student, my doctpr automatically said it was all just sress!! Are you kidding me?? He gave me antidepressants and ran some bloodwork...everything was normal, I was tested for a gluten allergy...normal. Thank God for all of you ladies writing about your bad experiences!! <3 I came across this forum last week and literly started crying, I was so happy that someone else felt my anguish. I have an app on April 11 to have my Mirena removed by OB, I can't wait to feel normal again, but I am now really concerned about the negative effecs that some of you are having after removal. Any advice?
