  • nPain on Oct, 16, 2012:

    I'm a 30 yr old mom of 3 who had my mirena put n about 7 months ago. Recently my lower legs, calfs and feet have gotten severly swollen. I'm also having constant discharge. I tried a yeast infection cream and it went away but came right back. My breast have recently become sore and I have a sharp pain in my side from time to time. I'm scheduled to go to the dr on Monday. I've also been having very heavy bleeding associated with my period this month. Someone tell me I'm not crazy. Someone please give me some advice I'm very scared.

    Hi. I'm sorry you've been having so many symptoms. :( I hope you've gotten some help. My suggestion is to RUN to the nearest naturopathic doctor and start going there. Doctors are human and drug companies are out for MONEY. You need to do your own research on things. I was given Provera to "help" me when I had menorrhagia (excessive bleeding) and they didn't tell me the potential side effects. I finally stopped taking it after about five days and found what really worked for me. It was an herb called Shepherd's Purse. I took it carefully and it worked great. A naturopathic doctor will understand how the body REALLY works and will tell you. So many prescriptions and other things pushed on people really hurt them. Check out Dr. Mercola's site for info on many subjects including birth control. You can google him. Another really good site is the Weston A Price site. Blessings! I'm goodplans4you and I'm over at yahooooo.

  • I usually take Oxycontin, Concerta and Zoloft. Recently had to add Diflucan which produced symptoms of Angioedema. Turns out, I've had Hereditary Angioedema since childhood. The Lasix is to remove some of the fluid.
