From this study (3 weeks ago):
I had an awful dream where I was being attacked by rats. I normally have very vivid dreams that leave me feeling extremely strange upon waking up, but this dream was just awful. I woke myself up from it. After being fully awake, I shut my eyes and started dreaming it once again and it wasn't where it left off. It was as if things happened while I was awake and I fell back into them, in sync with the dream. It made me extremely uncomfortable and afraid. I felt one bite me on the leg and when I turned on the light to look at my leg, there was a red mark right where it bit me and my leg was tingling and itching. I don't know how to feel about it.

Can only eat bland food, triggers hoarseness swallowing problems mucus in throat and a feeling of lump in the throat was thinking if it was the hormones from the mirena coil that was causing this.

Had mirena in for 11 months and I have had it removed for 2 months. I'm still struggling bad with side effects which include severe acid reflux, severe heartburn since removal, depression and anxiety, so emotional, loss of concentration and focus, blurred vision, weight gain around stomach, sore and swollen lymph nodes under arms and on both sides of groin. I won't stop until everyone knows about bayers negligence with this product.
