From this study (5 months ago):
the dizziness, fatigue and muscle issues started after i had a cold in June 2013.
From this study (1 year ago):
Had Mirena IUD put in and within 1 yr I started having all these problems. Thought it was menopause. Had to quit working due to swollen legs and headaches back pain. My stomach was always bloated and went to doc over and over and had gall bladder checked, kidneys checked. Nothing. Am in menopause for 1 1/2 year and none of the symptoms went away. Thought I was going insane with all the different pain and no answers from the doctors and different tests. Went to chiropractor last week and he told me my IUD had shifted and I should get it removed. I am doing this next week. hopefully these symptoms will go away.
