  • From this study (1 week ago):

  • I've had flank pain on my left side for several months now. Some days its awful some days slim to none. Usually when I take 800 mg of Ibuprofen they pain is tolerable. I went to the doctor for it once and they associated it with being a muscle pain, and gave me a relaxer. That makes me tired and doesn't help. They also gave me an antibiotic because I tested positive for a UTI.

    Any ideas? Could the pain be from my Mirena?
