Why wont doctor's recognize all these side effects? My Gyno didn't even want to take mine out! I am appealed by the treatment of these doctors. I have had mine for 2 yrs after my 2nd baby, all has been great up until the last 2-3 months. Periods now come ever 2 weeks, I have been gaining weight in the last 6mos. despite religiously going to the gym and eating right. Joint pain, finger and feet tingling, headaches, puffy stomach (my stomach has NEVER been a problem area for me and it looked flatter 6 months after I had the baby than it does now) and the absolute WORST dizziness...pretty debilitating. There were times when I didn't feel comfortable driving it was so bad. I had mine take out yesterday and while I dont expect my symptoms to immediately go away, I am hoping over the next 2 weeks I will start feeling better. This is no way to live! It seems like each day my symptoms get a little worse. What pisses me off is after unsuccessfully taking the thing out on my own, I scheduled an appt (which OF COURSE is not covered by insurance....why would it be?) with an GYN. After paying the $50 specialist copay, the doc looked at it and said to his assistant "Nope, we're not gonna take it out today!" WTF????? Why? This is the WHOLE reason I am here today. I started to have a panic attack, which he then told me there way "No way the Mirena is causing you problems, you could be having mini seizures or have a brain tumor." THANK YOU, now I am hyperventilating. I told him to take it out, I dont care what he thinks. Taking it out didn't hurt a bit, nor have I had any bleeding. He wrote me a script for Xanax (I am the most calm person on the planet and would never otherwise need xanax). I hope everyday gets better. The doctor said if I feel better in 2 weeks call him b/c he'd be shocked to learn his precious Mirena can do this to a woman. He also said all the people on these message boards are crazy and make things up for fun. I AM A REAL WOMAN 32, WITH REAL VERY BAD SYMPTOMS. I hope this helps someone out there. I will let you all know how I feel in 2 weeks.
