I just wanted to briefly share that I believe I have been suffering from seizures due to the mirena Iud. I had my first Iud inserted in Dec 2007. I accidentally pulled that out about dec 2009 and had a new one inserted in jan 2010. I had a grand mal seizure in my sleep in March 2010. I started have what I refer to as episodes of confusion throughout the year and 2011. I was put on seizure meds in September 2011 due to the episodes. This seemed to stop everything but then I had a grand mal dec 2011 and a few more grand mals as well as breakthrough episodes. I went off the meds 6/28 because I believed that was causing me to have grand mal seizures. I went back to having episodes and have been under the care of a neurologist although I am not taking seizure medication. I had a grand mal seizure on 1/5/13 in my sleep. Had 4 episodes that month and a panic attack. I had a episode on 2/6/2013 and had my iud removed 2/7/2013. I had 2 grand mal seizures on 2/20 and my first period since the Mirena was removed on 2/22/2013. I am hopeful that it was the mirena and I hope my story will help others.
