Re: Mirena hormonal side effects-the scientific explanation

This has been my life for the past two years. It started with edema and then what looked like kidney infections. Then my allergies went off the scale. I started having anaphylactic reactions to fragrance. I then had what presented as a massive heart attack (I was 42). It was later determined to be acute hypersensitivity myocarditis (swelling of the heart caused by allergies). It left me with a murmur. Then I went into Addison's crisis, my adrenal glands were only functioning at about 10% I had a severe sodium deficiency and potassium imbalance. A few months later they determined I also had thyroid dysfunction and low pancreas function. I am now being treated for autoimmune angioedema uticaria (severe swelling and hives caused by allergies that have progressed to an autoimmune stage. I am on a regime of 12 antihistamines a day along with adrenal supplementation, thyroid supplementation, magnesium and vitamin b. I am starting to feel human, but have been on disability for 1.5 years and rarely leave the house for fear of allergic reaction. I also have to nap frequently due to the medication side effects.
