I just thought I would post and tell how good im doing. I have a HORRIBLE setback at 4 months post removal that lasted about 3 weeks. But it all suddenly went away and I have felt AWESOME for the last 2 weeks. Muscle twitching is almost non-existent, muscle and joint pain is gone, Leg weakness comes around every so often but isnt that bad and my throat feels normal. I live everyday without feeling like im dying. Its wonderful. I am due any day for my 5th period since removal. There is hope. Its hard to believe that mirena can cause such weird and scary symptoms but it CAN and you CAN and WILL get better!!!! Hang in there for those suffering. These last 5 months have been SO long and hard and im sure I will still have my bad days, but it will pass and things only get better. Life is good!!!!
