Okay before anyone reads this and only answers ..."go to the doctor" ... Please keep in mind that I do not have insurance. I can't just go to a doctor. I save that for my kids. With that being said... Does this sound serious?... Or could anyone at least point me in the right direction? One thing... I had a mirena put in about two years ago. It was great until about six months ago... and that even saying that that's the problem... I don't know. My stomach is usually in pain. It goes from severe cramps to just feeling like I ate WAY to much. But I am almost never hungry. I eat once a day... and always feel stuffed after the fact... even though my food intake usually only consists of maybe a sandwich. My periods are very light... I don't even get them but like once every three or four months. I heard that that was normal on the mirena. I just don't understand this pain or my appetite. I have never been like this before. Usually I am starving all of the time... I literally cannot eat more then one meal a day. It hurts. Sometimes I get a sharp pain in my lower abdomen and a numb pain in a leg.... usually my right. This has all come on within the last six months. At first I dealt with it. But the pain is getting worse... and I don't understand the food thing at all. Is this just symptoms of the mirena? If someone could just at least let me know this doesn't sound serious... I would be very grateful.
Just search on internet: Mirena Side Effects for women and you will see that there are a lot of women having side effects. Get info from people who know. Unfortunately, I am not one of them. Good luck. Don't suffer one more day. GET HELP.
