I have had the Mirena in for a few months now. The cramping is no fun, but I have been having some very strange side effects. I'm not sure if they are truly related to the IUC or not.
I am always tired, and i sometime have trouble breathing. I actually have to sit up in bed to get a breath. I have trouble urinating from time to time as well. And i have been having so much body pain that i can barely stand it. At night my back and chest becomes so sore that I can't sleep. It's like all the muscles around my spine and ribs are extremely bruised. I have woken up a few times with complete body tenderness. For example this morning i could barely walk. My calves, ankles, legs, hips, sides, back, arms, neck... you name it, it's really hurting.
I feel like I was just in a car wreck, yet i didn't even go out of the house.
I don't understand it... My Dr. prescribes me Percocet for my back, due to a past injury, and even with that, i'm in more pain than i can take.
I am curious to know if these could be associated with the mirena, or if there is another condition I should check out. I will mention that i have had a few of my nerves in my back around the spine burned at a spinal doctor's office. I have had very tender joints in both hands and ankles since my car wreck in 2003. As well ad very bad sciatica and back pain.
I'm posting this in a few places in hopes to find a solution. I hope it's not the birth control, because I'm really hoping that my 3 children are enough. I don' t think my body can handle another pregnancy. This last one nearly did me in.
