OMG ALL of these things seems crazily familiar. On a regular basis I swear I am pregnant because I am SOOOO tired, and my breast are tender, to the point where I think my husband just thinks I am doing it to scare him... he wants another baby, but the miscarrage rate scares him.
I have had back pain, shooting pains in my right shoulder, I have a HUGE sex normally and now I could give or take it, I have severe legs cramps and insanity and migranes for about three days before my period which has no subsided, but instead seems to take forever to end. Granted after the birth of my third son I have extremely painful, heavy periods but they only lasted like 60 hours and they were about 45 days apart. Now, they last upto 17 days, I think I'm done and low and behold a day later I need super absorbancy tampons. And the cramps are so bad that they wake me up at night. I remember being told by the doctor during my first pregnancy that that was a sign of real labor not just braxton hicks.
THe baby kicking thing is super wierd and I totally have it. The racing heart rate is definitely a problem. And I have most certainly had a lowered immune system. I have not been sick with anything I needed more than nyquil for in over three years and suddenly I have had three cases of sinusitus that AFTER being put on a strong antibiotic, I was diagnosed with double ear infections and was given even higher doses of those and came down with bronchitis... here's the kicker, NO ONE ELSE IN MY ENTIRE HOUSEHOLD HAD SO MUCH AS COLD OR COUGH, currently in FREAKING may I have gotten sinusitus so bad that I haven't slept in days. In addition to this I have this weird skin thing that been going on with my hands and wrists and forearms. My skin is just cracking and flaking and it looks like some one took a steel scruber to my index fingers and wrists. It just happens over night, too, in little one inch
blotches, my husband thought I burnt myself cooking, on my wrist it looks so bad.
I definitly get excrusiating headaches like none other. THe appoint tomorrow was for my skin irritation and I wanted to try to get on imitrex, but now i think I just want this thing out of me.
Thanks to all of you for the fabulous descriptions of what you've been going through, it really put all this together. And the link to the adobe booklet on the mirena studies really helped me realise that even my sudden bout with horrible bronchial infections was very possibly due to the IUD.
I have also put on 30 pounds
since last summer and I look like I did when I was on the shot, all ballooned and bloated, like I have extra chins that weren't there normally. I want this thing OUT!!!!!!!
ON top of it all I had to have a spinal tap because the dr thought I have minigitus and they screwed it up and not I have lost a lot of movement in my spine. Any body know if that ever gets better????
Any comments would be great....
I'm obviously needing people to talk to considering the massive lenghth of this thing.
