I was just wanting to see if anyone can give me some advice or help me feel reassured that i am not going nuts and that the mirena is causing me problems.
I have had my mirena in for just over 6 months now. Everything was going fine except for the 5 month long period and some acne. However the past month and a half to two months my life has become, well crap. I have never in my life suffered from severe anxiety and panic attacks however now it rules my life. I could sense that i was starting to get anxious a couple of months ago and it has been getting worse every week. It is at the point where i can hardly leave the house. I have this overwhelming fear of dying and that I won't be able to breathe. I am starting to become house bound due to the fear that i will die in public or have a panic attack, and these fears are now starting to happen at home and i am having panic attacks out of no where. Another thing that has been happening and this doesn't help when it comes to the anxiety, is that my heart seems to be fluttering or every now and again changing beats, I don't know how to explain it. Does anyone know what i mean? I looked on this site and i am pretty much convinced all this is from the mirena.Everyone around me is so worried and doesn't know what to do. I went to a therapist who put me on anti-depressants but i know i am not depressed.I have a 10 month old and couldn't be happier. Has anyone else experienced overwhelming anxiety? did you think you were going mad? HELP. my gyno is going away and i think tomorrow might be her last day. If i am still convinced tomorrow that the mirena is causing this,i will land on her doorstep and demand this thing be taken out. I just want my life back.
