You may be suffering from adrenal fatigue, caused by the synthetic progesterone release from your Mirena IUD.
It's a bit technical to explain, but if you need the science behind it, let me know and I'll post it.
In short, the synthetic progesterone may be causing LOWER progesterone
in your body, leading to lower cortisol levels (progesterone is an essential precursor to cortisol.)
Also Progesterone is vital hormone for the immune system, bone strength, healthy nervous system and HEART FUNCTION.

Warnings for Mirena IUD Include:
Ectopic pregnancy (which can be life-threatening and result in infertility)
Intrauterine pregnancy (birth defects are a possibility)
Sepsis (an infection which can be fatal)
Pelvic inflammatory disease (which can result in infertility)
Irregular Bleeding and Amenorrhea (no periods)
Embedment (in the uterine wall)
Perforation (of the uterus or cervix)
Ovarian cysts (can cause severe mid-cycle pain)
Risk of Mortality (risk of dying is low)
Possible Side Effects of Mirena Include:
Lower abdominal pain
Upper respiratory infection
Leukorrhea (abnormal vaginal discharge)
Vaginitis (irritation or inflammation of the vagina)
Dysmenorrhea (cramps or painful periods)
Abnormal Pap smear
Perhaps the Mirena IUD is not for you, but this is something you need to discuss with your gynecologist.
Adrenal fatigue, with secondary hypothyroidism should be ruled out, however, your doctors most likely will not order the appropriate tests.
It's again too complicated to detail, but it has to do with "established"
You may want to consider a Functional Medicine Doctor, who can order
a Functional Adrenal Stress Profile (saliva) and Free T3, Free T4
and Reverse T3 for thyroid function and take it from there.
Let me know if you need any more details, however, please note that my suggestions and comments do not constitute medical advice.
Oh BTW how's your little daughter doing?
PS. Your tissue magnesium levels (not serum levels!) could be low.
I'd suggest a trial transdermal magnesium oil therapy for a few weeks,
to see if you experience notable improvement. Just look it up.
Have you had a pregnancy test? Sometimes the IUD's don't work.
