I've had the Mirena in now for 22 months(almost 2 years) Im 50 years old and had it placed for heavy bleeding issues, as well as a birthcontrol. Probably for longer than I know I've been noticing severe knee/leg pain but for sure around 7 to 8 months severly. Had xrays done and there is mild arthritis and osteoarthritis in both knees. Mild should not give the kind of pain that I'm experiencing. it wakes me in throughout the night and I walk like Im in my seventies most times. I did have costisone injections for both knees, found some relief but not 100%. So I started googling the mirena just on the off chance it has some connection and see a lot comments from women experiencing the same type of thing. I would like to know if anyone has had this and if removed did it clear up the pain.

My Occipital Nerve ruptured last year in February and after all of the MRI's and pills it seems that my Mirena ran out too soon and caused the problem. I've had a new one put in a year ago the 25th and I have had nothing but issues. Bad cramps, pains in my chest (never had them before) heavy ...
I got the Mirena IUD last March and started feeling strange months after. I have gained weight and haven't been able to lose it. I'm in my late 40's - my gyn said I would not have side effects and that the hormones would help me at my age. Another doctor told me the hormones could be ...
