SB1108, I find Dr Myhill article interesting - especially the part where they talk about symptoms while detoxing. I can identify with most of these symptoms (although I've been feeling better lately, but I still have blah days). Often I would feel like I had the flu, without the sore throat and fever. Maybe the symptoms I've been feeling are from my body detoxing itself! Although I wonder how long a body needs to detox Mirena. It's been a long time for me.
The following reported symptoms, also gathered from various PWCs trying this simplified treatment approach, are those that I suspect result from die-off and detox:
Headaches, "heavy head," "heavy-feeling headaches"
Alternated periods of mental "fuzziness" and greater mental clarity.
Feeling "muggy-headed" or "blah" or sick in the morning.
Transient malaise, flu-like symptoms.
Transiently increased fatigue, waxing and waning fatigue, feeling more tired and sluggish, weakness.
Sensation of "brain firing: bing, bong, bing, bong," "brain moving very fast".
Depression, feeling overwhelmed, strong emotions.
Greater need for "healing naps."
Swollen or painful lymph nodes.
Runny nose, low grade "sniffles," sneezing, coughing.
Increased perspiration, unusual smelling perspiration.
"Metallic" taste in mouth.
Transient nausea, "sick to stomach"
Increased bowel movements.
Diarrhoea, loose stools, urgency.
Unusual colour of stools, e.g. green.
Temporarily increased urination
Transiently increased thirst.
Unusual smelling urine
Transient increased muscle pain.
