Hi, I have been lurking here for a few weeks, reading all the posts,searching out people with similar symptoms to me, to try to give myself some hope that Im not crazy and the mirena is causing all of my horrible symptoms...... i found some wonderful support and advice, and have decided now that this evil thing needs to come out.
I thought it may be a good idea if people could post their symptoms in one place, so that newcomers could check out others symptoms, and compare , cos i know how much comfort it gave to me to find people going through similar problems to me.
Here are mine..... which have gradually appeared over the past 9 months or so, since i had the mirena in
pain in hands, like sore muscles in my fingers, and hands ...also my hands felt stiff, and harder to move
sore muscles in arms and legs, feels like ive done too much excersize
left foot started feeling funny, like a tight feeling, then recently started getting a tingly, vibration in my foot
fatigue, very tired after routine things, also never feeling like id had a good nights sleep
feeling depressed, anxious and irritable most of the time. Was taken to hospital x 1 with a panic attack . never had one before....
rapid heart rate apon mild exertion.... also have had palpitations at times.
dizziness ( occasional ) and occasional shakiness too....
an overwhelming fear of dying of some horrible desease and leaving my 5 kids without their mum.... ive been totally convinced for the past 8 months that i have MS or motor neurone ( ALS)
well, thats about it for me..... i am planning to have this evil thing out straight after christmas
