Hi! I had my Mirena IUD placed just over one year ago. Just like so many people on this forum they could not find the strings at my first follow up appointment. Just one month after I had it put in I started having these odd almost peircing headaches on the left side of my head followed by numbness in my face, arm and leg, all on the left side of my body. I've had cramping in my arms, and severe fatigue. Since then I have been to countless doctors and have been tested for too many things to even count, but let me try. MS, brain tumors, lupus, Vitamin deficiencies, neck and back injuries etc. I have had 3 MRI's of my brain, tons of blood work, and I've see 2 nuerologist. Thankfully all of this testing has found nothing serious. I have at every single appointment asked if it could be the Mirena. Every single Dr. has said no way. There is no possible way. But I am not convinced. I have experienced some weight gain, some painfull gas but my main concern is the other symptoms. I was wondering if anyone has experienced any of these weird things?? Most days I feel like I am losing my mind. I'm not muchof a complainer but I can't deal with this stuff. I see my neurologist this week so I am looking for info to take with me to have another discussion about this. Thanks for the help!!!!
