I am new to this forum and WOW what I have learned. I've been having numbness ,tingling in very strange places and NEVER thought to attribute this to my birth control. I've had the Carpal Tunnel (sp?) nerve tests (which are no picnic) MRIs, CAT scans, you name it. Now I come here and think maybe it is all my Birth Control. My tounge is the wierdest- just the very tip will go numb/tingly or one patch of my tounge. I've also had wierd sensationsa on one side of my nose, my ear lobes, parts of my lips. My hands going numb were the absolute worst. My doctors have just thought I was crazy when describing all this, I am SO glad to know that other ppl are having these same issues. I've had Mirena for three and a half years now.
