From this study (2 months ago):
Began taking sleep aids 15+yrs ago.Can not nap or sleep without.Had the Mirena IUD inserted over 10yrs ago, shortly after it was approved.Began exp sever mood swings and depr. Was put on anti-depr. Began having chronic pain.Most sever in the neck,shoulders,arms and hips.Drs were unable to determine the cause.Several yrs later it was determined that I had PMR.I was only 40 at the time.I was put on a high dose of prednisone.I was on prednisone for about 5yrs.Even the slightest reduction in the dose brought back severe pain.I am now off prednisone.I continued to experience full body pain but not so much the severe stiffness. I experience severe perspiration. It was discovered that I had a VitD deficiency.Test around 7. I currently take supplement and test around 35.During all this time I was experiencing severe abdominal pains and began experiencing very severe, sharp "ice pick" type pain throughout my body.Pain occurred regardless of time of day, awoke me from sleep and occurred in random spots often within just a few seconds of the previous pain.I began experiencing bloating, golt, & constipation after getting the IUD. A few yrs ago I began experiencing severe twitching, mostly in my legs, day and night. Finally, the 3rd GYN I was referred to was able to remove the IUD, in December 2013. Since having the IUD removed I am no longer constipated, no longer have golt, and much of the ice-pick type pain I was experiencing is gone. I continue to have sharp abdominal pain, although it feels different. My menstrual cycle has not returned. I am currently taking Ambien 5MG or 6.25 slow release nightly, Cymbalta/DuloxetineHCL60mg, Adderall 20mg 1 or 2x/day, Meloxicam, 15mg, Vitamin D2 (1.25 MG 50k unit) 2XperWk and Fenofibric. I suspect silicone toxicity from the IUD has brought on or exasperated my conditions over the past 10 years. Please help me to understand and recover.
From this study (11 months ago):
I have been diagnosed with anxiety, emotioally unstable personality, anxiety, depression, migraines, non-epiltpic attacks, sleep seizures, night terrors, and PTSD
Have recently had coil fitted very tired
From this study (5 years ago):
Notice in the drug list that several drugs are necessary to counteract the effects of other drugs, e.g., I have moderate sleep apnea. That started me on Dexedrine, which was replaced with provigil to stop the crash after the dex wore off. But, now I use Ambien because the provigil dose that will do away with sleepiness keeps me awake more than 16 hours, etc.
Byetta sometimes causes nausea. So, I find myself craving starches to settle my stomach, which raises my glucose level (Type 2 diabetic), which partically negates the purpose of the byetta.
Too many drug interactions.
