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.
