Mirena Acne Breakouts, Severe Anxiety, Anxiety Attacks, Mid Dec, Weird Cause

I had the Mirena inserted on 06/19/08, a day before I was scheduled for my second back surgery. Yea, I maybe should've waited but it took me 3 months just to get an appt with my gyne so I decided to keep it. It hurt like hell. I didn't think much of it because it was birth control (just implanted). Well, the next day I had surgery and everything was fine. All the doctors new that I did have the procedure prior to surgery and said it would not interfere. Anyhow, I was sent home and ended up back in the hospital 3 days later from a horrible migraine. I had never had a migraine in my life and it very unlikely to start with symptoms at the age of 30. They thought it was a possible reaction to anesthesia but the more I think about it...I don't think so. All test were negative but I had a migraine for about 3 days. I was very depressed and in extreme amount of pain (from headache, not the back-- that part was actually a breeze compared to last time). I started with severe anxiety attacks to were I was (and still am) afraid to drive on the freeway. I have a feeling of uncontrol/ fuzzy- like I'm not really driving, just floating along the freeway. My skin is horrible. I have acne breakouts like crazy and am actually getting a "rash/small bumps" on the upper part of arms/shoulders. It's weird cause my friend has this same symptom and she has had hers for about 2 years. Anyhow, I have weight gain, some hair loss but have noticed more so hair growing on my face/chin. Headaches are still there (sharp, stabbing to forehead) but they come in spurts. I'm very irritable and my husband thinks I don't love him anymore because I don't want to have sex. (Whats the use of being on birth control if you don't want to have sex?) My breast are very tender to touch and I am very tired and dizzy at times. I have scheduled an appt for mid Dec to have it removed. I will update the status of symtoms. From what I can tell by reading all the blogs....its definitely this IUD.
