Hello, I am sorry you are struggling with mirena. i am 6 months post removal and still struggling. I have had muscle pain and joint pain since inserting the IUD back in November 07. Worse thing I have ever done. I struggle with symptoms mostly all in my left leg. I get that dull achy feeling in my ankle, knee and sometimes my elbow. I dont know what causes it and I haven't noticed any time of the month its worse or better. Its very random and the pain moves around on me. I sometimes feel weak in my left leg and I have muscles twitching all my body. i also get Arthritis like symptoms in both of my hands. It has been a very scary 6 months for me and I am still hopeful that I will someday recover fully from this. I have received much comfort and support from this forum. Some woman seems to recover quickly from the ill effects of Mirena and some seem to take more time. Its hard to say when you might start feeling like yourself again. Just know that your not alone and suffering all by yourself. It is really hard living day after day not know what it wrong, I am there and can totally relate to how you feel. Keep us posting on how you are doing and I hope it doesn't take too long before you feel 100%.
