    Mirena for Pain (joint); A headache

    I’m sooo mad !! This beforehand … Have for 7 months, the Mirena spiral (due to heavy bleeding, iron deficiency). Have hardly any bleeding – but that is the only thing that works. Otherwise I have the following symptoms for three months: – from one day to the other daily joint pain in the fingers – again headaches – strong susceptibility to tension (especially neck area) – permanently cold hands – tiredness – sensitive breasts – 6 kg increased in 6 months ( despite exercise and normal food). Certainly a lot of – water retention in the legs and associated with something – stronger varicose veins I was in the last three months: – once with the gynecologist (The spiral is actually very well tolerated, you are probably exhausted., Working too much, right?) – twice with different family doctors with twice blood findings at intervals of one month: no gout, no rheumatism. Probably finger arthritis, because you can unfortunately do nothing, except ointment lubricate (I was horrified !!! And I was afraid, how to continue!) – 8 times with the massage á 70 euros for the persistent neck pain – and have hours of my life for the independent search on the various complaints spentbecause apparently no doctor can think combined !! That’s just crazy! Since a few days, I suspect and at least since reading the other stories of suffering, I’m sure (ALL, completely SAFE) where all this comes from this Mirena spiral! And I wonder too: how can such a thing be allowed !! Have the gynecologist already spoken to tape, that I want to have an appointment immediately. Am SOOOO SAUER on this WOMAN !!! (Incidentally, I paid 500 euros for the insert Please pay cash and without invoice!). – I will print the testimonials and give them to the FAREWELL. I’m glad if the thing is out and with the heavy bleeding I’m getting better after this horrible experience also better.

    Mirena for Breast span; Edema; Pain (joint); Pain (back); Overweight; Pain (acute)

    I let 2 hours ago insert the H. spiral. Before I let them insert, I have in various forums on event. Side effects read a lot and thought that these many women probably exaggerate powerful and I do not necessarily have to get these side effects – especially not so many at a time. For 1 month I have joint pain, in addition to various other side effects such. Water retention in the legs, extreme breast enlargement and stretching, back pain, extreme sweating, oily hair, weight gain (4 kg). At first I had joint pain with elbow strain, then wrists, finger bones, knees and for a few days my hips hurt. The pain disappears again and again, and then come back after a few days. I’m currently being treated by the orthopedist. The result of the blood test, if any rheumatism, is still pending. My gynecologist said that does not come from the spiral, my new gynecologist meant what else – if I previously the o.g. Had no problems. I have decided to let them get me and believe firmly that I am as good as before the Mirena, just a little pain in the menstrual period and a little heavier bleeding.

    Mirena for Pain (joint); Fatigue

    5 years ago and 3 months ago I had the hormonal spiral set. For the reason that I always had a heavy menstrual period and thus also iron deficiency. In addition, I always got a migraine-like headache during the menstrual period, which lasted two days and almost put me out of action. After inserting the spiral, these complaints abruptly stopped and I was very happy and happy about it. No bleeding and no extreme headache anymore. I was a convinced Hormone Spiral representative! Over the years, things changed a lot in my life. My hair was extremely greasy every 2 days and my scalp was very flaky to the point of exzema on the hairlines, which I had to be constantly treated by the skin doctor. At the same time I got a few joint complaints. Scattered fingers and toes began to hurt. On bad days I could not open a bottle and carry heavy. I did not get a result, my blood counts were completely ok and no one could diagnose anything to me (luckily). He was very afraid of rheumatism and arthritis. That went downhill and uphill. Sometimes more and sometimes less. Now the 5 years of the spiral were over and I immediately decided to put a new one, because I noticed that the bleeding started again and with which my headaches returned. Again, hoping to be free of complaints soon, I had one removed and the next used at the same time. What a very painful procedure !!! The bleeding disappeared immediately, of course, the headache, but suddenly I had soooo violent fingers and toe joint pain that I can not carry anything. My mood is at zero, my powers are at an end, I feel tired, dull and totally listless. Unfortunately, I thought only for the first time whether this could probably hang together with the spiral ..! I went to an osteopath and she told me immediately that my hormone axis is totally confused and my complaints obviously related to the hormonal spiral. Now, in the next few days, I will start a therapy with phytotherapy and I very much hope that my complaints will be adopted. Otherwise, I see as the next step to let me remove the newly set spiral again and THANK everyone who wrote their experiences here, so I finally have clarity that I’m not alone! Unfortunately, the only pity is that the doctors do not provide proper education, neither the gynecologist, nor any other doctor. But I am happy and grateful now for me to have found the way to complete recovery again! I wish all the other women in the same situation and situation! Greetings Eva

    insidious side effects. Over time, complaints arose that I did not initially associate with the Mirena; Joint pain numb feeling and tingling in the hands stuffy nose mood swings heavy sweating chest pressure stomach problems nausea water retention weight increase dry skin and hair increased hair growth on the face cysts on the ovaries temporarily severe abdominal pain without clinical findings Since 4 weeks Mirena is out and I feel completely better. All complaints are not gone, but no more water retention, no stuffy nose and no pressure on the chest.

    After recommendation by two gynecologists, I decided after two pregnancies mainly because of my ever-strong monthly bleeding for the prevention with the Mirena Hormone Spiral. Although I have initially bothered somewhat because of known side effects, but I finally decided very consciously and with a positive attitude to it. I’m definitely nobody who inhales leaflets in his details and looking for side effects – in which case I have informed myself about the fundamental risks and lifted the note. What can I say? – After initial enthusiasm because of the painless laying and the significantly reduced monthly bleeding I could have written the leaflet myself! After I kept getting worse and worse, after almost a year I studied it more closely. I had gained eight kilos, was extremely fickle than otherwise balanced character and went up with every little thing like a bomb (great with two toddlers !!!), probably through the water retention in the legs I had extreme joint pain in the feet, on the chin and Thick black hair suddenly grew around my mouth, I had permanently swollen and aching lymph nodes under my armpits while my bra size grew from D to F, the allegedly only spotting became permanent and my generally poor condition ultimately caused a loss of my libido not only with me, but also with my husband. When I finally got abscesses in the genital area (passed harmless) and on the temple (had to be treated with antibiotics and made for the swelling of all lymph nodes around the ear region), it was enough for me completely. (Incidentally: The lymph node swelling under the armpits, I have all clarified – had no other, even malignant cause.) So I decided after less than a year to let the Mirena again. For six weeks, I’m now rid of the spiral. But after the drag, the fun went on: After two weeks, I suffered a fall bleeding, so I did not come for two hours from the toilet and at the end in the emergency room. Although the bleeding passed after a few hours, but I was now advised because of the strong bleeding tendency to let the womb lining. After our family planning is definitely over, I let that happen. Everything went well and I wonder why I did not decide it right away. And otherwise? Woman will ask: I did not have to wait the average indicated time of about the duration of the spiral until the side effects subsided. By now I’m three and a half kilos off without a diet, my old bras fit almost again, lymph node swelling are gone, joint pain much better, no more abscesses, the mental fluctuations are gone and most importantly: I can with my dwarves again without risk of Rage also look forward to chaos. My husband is relieved too. If the whole thing digested first and the abstemious time after surgery is over, that will be back with the libido 🙂 Well – and the black hair on the mouth part I stop and hope for their disappearance. CONCLUSION: The Mirena may be well tolerated in other women, definitely not with me. I would have gladly spared the 350 euros and the associated martyrdom! Oh yes: the hormone release is by no means as low as stated by the manufacturer and NATURALLY the hormones go into the bloodstream and not only act locally! This has now been scientifically proven. It is a scandal that both the manufacturer and most doctors do not acknowledge and admit that !!!

    I am stunned by what I read here and in other forums and groups. 4 years ago, I had the MIRENA placed after swallowing the pill daily for years. I am 41 years old and my gynecologist recommended the spiral and praised her in the highest tones. She would be well tolerated by all and all her patients would be satisfied. On my note, it would also be hormones, she reassured me, the MIRENA would deliver the hormones only locally. The spiral was laid, no possible side effects were given to me on the way, a leaflet I was certainly not handed. Today I know how naive I was. On holiday 2 months ago, I got to know a young woman and we came to the subject of MIRENA, why can not I say exactly today, but on arrival at home, I researched the Internet on this topic. It is unbelievable what I read all about complaints under the MIRENA. – premature menopausal symptoms – hot flashes / sweating – water retention – circulatory problems – dizziness – hair loss – sleep disorders – night sweats – mood swings – depressive episodes – irritability – fatigue / fatigue – weight gain – joint pain – muscle tension – abdominal pain – back pain – digestive problems – vaginal infections – blemishes – Facial hair – dry eyes Almost everything I read has been coming to me in the past 4 years, and I have not had the slightest idea that it might be due to the spiral. I have been walking from doctor to doctor for months, I doubt it myself, last year I have a rectocele removed from the rectum because I can not stand the abdominal and back pain, with the result: digestion works better now, abdominal and back pain remained. Previously unfit for work and taking antidepressants and sleeping pills for weeks due to these ongoing problems. Then I get vaccinated with gynatren last year for 97, – €, because I suffer again and again of vaginal infections and thus my antibodies should be strengthened, with the result: I treat myself with vaginal pills and ointment now, because I’m stupid happen to run to the doctor again and again. Then the annual check-up at the gynecologist, all right, spiral is perfect, my mentioned problems of sweating, sleep problems, mood swings, night sweats and pain all over the body can also indicate a defect and I would like to ask my doctor’s blood to be examined. Result: thyroid, iron, vitamin D, B12, folic acid everything in the green range and 18, – € for the lab paid as non-cash benefit. Then, five weeks ago, I had arthroscopy on my right shoulder to remove an inflamed bursa. Previously, I had been in pain for about 2 years, had been a permanent guest at physiotherapy to relieve muscle tension, had taken painkillers to work, and to sleep at night, I went to the neurosurgeon, who confirmed that my cervical spine was gone intact, but age appropriate and no surgery would be necessary, fortunately. I’ve been to the rheumatologist, with the result: all right, no rheumatism. Today’s current condition: bursa is out, proliferation on the biceps has been removed, everything went well, but … I still have painful movement restrictions. Then I have massive hair loss that has even struck my hairdresser now, I have gained 10 kg in 4 years, I get pain in the joints at night, I sweat as if I was in menopause, I am moody and irritable and have Therefore I have more and more stress with my husband, I am tired and beaten during the day, but can not sleep at night, I have a bloated face in the morning, in the evening swollen fingers and water retention above the ankles, I have facial hair growth, that I shave myself daily like a man, I have dry eyes and treat them with eye drops and I have blurred vision, have had me to do a progressive lens, which also does not really help me and the optician said that I was still pretty young for a lens with Nahverstärkung. The fact is that I let the spiral go and I hope, hope, hope that I will eventually go better and I find a suitable for me hormone-free contraceptive method. I found a Swiss company on the internet selling a cycle computer called Daysy. The information sounds pretty promising, but I’m pretty undecided as to whether it makes sense at my age just before menopause.

    Mirena for Bleeding

    I can confirm all listed side effects after 3.5 years. I bought for 420 EUR illnesses or let it turn. Except for a glossy brochure, a Mirena Pass and the bill I received nothing. My gynecologist has not mentioned a single side effect, but turned me on the solution of all my complaints for a usurious price. I let me remove this bastard now from another doctor.

    Mirena for Bleeding

    Leave the Mirena after 2 months tomorrow. It was only through the osteopath that my pain could be related to the spiral. Got 3 cysts in the abdomen and 1 cyst in the thyroid within the 3 months. Strong back and pelvic pain. Pain in the wrists and ankles. Muscle pain in upper arms and legs. I hope the side effects diminish soon after pulling the coil. My conclusion. Never again…

    17 days have passed since the insertion of the hormonal spiral. A week ago hip pain suddenly appeared on both sides. One day, my left arm ached all day, which worried me a lot. As a result, pain in the left shoulder has come to it. Overall, I feel stiff, which was definitely not the case before insert!

    Side effects: Muscle aches; Joint pain

    The side effects of Mirena come slowly. Usually after 2 years begins the negative effect of the spiral. Tiredness, unfocused, dizziness, nausea, weakness, insomnia, joint and muscle aches, masculine hairiness, itching, odor sensitivity, breast tenderness, altered body odor, muscle atrophy, head and back pain, water retention in hands and feet, brittle fingernails, panic attacks, muscle twitching. Mirena turns healthy women into sick women. In my view, the Mirena is not recommended ..

    Hello my dears! I have the Mirena now for almost 10 years and am extremely scared of what I’ve read (not only in this forum) now for reviews. Actually, I was just looking for a confirmation that my (now increasingly occurring) abdominal spasms are related to the spiral ….. and now I have just found a whole list of side effects, which I 80 – 90% self-confirm. For me, the Mirena was recommended because at 17 I already had a leg vein thrombosis, then was not allowed to take a pill and then got the copper spiral. But I did not tolerate these and so I was (after the birth of my son) the Mirena very dear to the heart, because it has virtually no side effects, except the great fact that the menstrual is hardly or no longer felt and see. I immediately felt so well because I had to think about no interactions with other drugs, no pill intake and so on. Every now and then I had an abdominal spasm for a few hours, but after my gynecologist said it was all alright, I did not care anymore. So after 5 years I got rid of the old one and put a new one because it was so practical and the few convulsions a year were a low price for my independence ….. That I have changed a lot in the last years , for me totally untypical behavior on the day, constantly having any physical ailments for which no doctor has an explanation (blood values all super fine, organs also everything ok) and I have almost no desire to have sex or physical closeness more meanwhile almost cost me my marriageIf I have to read now that there are hundreds of women who feel the same way, I could only howl ….. with happiness that I am not alone and finally found out and in anger, because these damn gynecologists probably all really just Provitgeil or simply blue-eyed areHere is a small list of my complaints that have crept in recent years, but increasingly occurred: – extremely frequent headaches, to migraine-like conditions – scalp itching with recurring dandruff – constantly blemished skin (had hardly pimples as a teenager) – Itching all over the body – permanent feeling of bloated, up to the feeling of being pregnant – flatulence and stool problems, despite adequate hydration (good 3 liters daily) – total libido loss (maximum 1 time every 2 to 3 months of desire, but even during which disappears) – anxiety to depression – tantrums, extreme mood swings – creeping weight gain, despite normal eating behavior (eat rather little) – water retention – pernicious pain in the abdomen, with the feeling that someone pushes a knitting needle through the vagina – memory problems – joint pain (feels gout or Ar thritis-like) – massive sleep disorders – circulatory problems – sweating to chills – constant tiredness, fatigue and listlessness ….. Yes and so it goes on and no doctor finds an explanation for even one symptom, because, after all, my blood levels okay and I’m only 31 years old. Conclusion: what should I have, except that I’m more likely to be a hypochondriac, than really sick …. I go to the gynecologist tomorrow and get advice on what I have in my situation for contraceptive options. But one thing I know for sure: This little crap comes outIf then hopefully in a few weeks at least some of my problems in the air dissolve, I would be really grateful. At the moment, all my hope lies in the removal of this thing, since I really do not know myself anymore and do not want to go on living like that. Luckily, I have a man who has been with me all these years and is really looking forward to hoping I’ll be back soon.

    Unfortunately, only after 6.5 years Mirena (2.Hormonspirale) lights up on me. Also I was never informed by my FÄ (1st spiral another FA) about the side effects, but only about contraindications that they either slipped or might grow in. There should be no side effects, one drummed. That this is the greatest contraception that there is, no question, because lust for sex, I hardly have. Quite apart from the loss of libido, my skin has changed a lot and hair growth has increased enormously. Of course, only in places that should be reserved for men. My chin is now covered in inflammation and scars, as I am dedicated to my morning and afternoon ritual of stubble removal with tweezers. The hair grows, despite constant exfoliation, in the skin and this inflames. Without covering the places with tinting cream, I dare not leave the house. Although I’m dark in type and have always had more hair, but not to that extent. On the toes, back of the feet, chin, buttocks, Pofalte they have now increasingly settled, are still hard and black. Growing, shaving, plucking becomes everyday. 1 1/2 years ago I even bought an expensive device for permanent hair removal with the light technology. At first thought it would also help on the chin, unfortunately not. But my biggest problem is the permanent itching all over my body, mainly on my back and arms. Am for years at the clarification at the house or dermatologist. Since I used to have a mushroom braid, I thought I would never get rid of it. Here are circular white spots after scratching, which I can detect all over the upper body and arms. My family doctor said, with the tablet cure for skin fungus, the problem would have to be finally resolved, since I already a year often a shower cure for the disease and did not help. But I did not realize that this had already been fought for a long time. yes, no skin fungus was more evidence. Nevertheless, itching and permanent white patches of skin, which are very pronounced in summer and ugly to look at. A terrible burden, because until the evening intensifies the itching and prevents falling asleep. I had no explanation yet, already bought acute sprays for itching for neurodermatitis patients, made sea salt baths and am now still every day 2-3 times creaming and make the itching more bearable. In addition, since a few years hives, which makes itself felt in the cold. Already at 10 degrees, itching pustules on the thighs form when I go walking. Also, in the evening, all of a sudden, I got hives all over my upper body. Inexplicable, because I did not eat or did anything special. Neither detergent change, nor food change changed something. You get totally crazy because nobody can help you. My sister advised me wg. hair growth and itching to remove the spiral, as this had to be the trigger. Never, I thought, can not be, did not want to believe her. Why? No FA confirms that, as many women read here. After all, is a lucrative business with the spiral. The patient is secondary. Sometimes one gets the feeling that here in agreement of all FÄ the side effects of the Mirena are simply rejected and concealed, in order to keep the business going. Other side effects include flatulence, bloated abdomen with malaise, as if you were pregnant. For some years diarrhea, sometimes so strong that the chair is only watery. An anal thrombosis had to be removed a few times, so the proctologist advised me not to push so hard during bowel movements, which would cause hemorrhoids and thrombosis. He did not believe me the diarrhea, because I have according to his statement have a hard bowel movement. A colonoscopy, therefore, I had to endure even over me. So, nothing fits together anymore. Still ask me if all my complaints are triggered by the Mirena. Two years ago, I still got pain in my tailbone, without it would have fallen on it. At some point it became so strong that I could not sit down normally anymore. After about 1 1/2 years, a CT was finally made. Of course without findings! No periostitis or anything else to prove. Pain is my constant companion, as tendinitis in the arms to the wrist, as osteoarthritis is also suspected in the shoulder joints. As well as osteoarthritis in the knee and cervical spine. Inflammation can never be detected in the blood and I am absolutely pumperlgsund. Since many women here indicate back pain and joint pain, this pain could also have to do with the spiral. Unfortunately, one can not prove this. The coccyx
