I am 33 years old. With 3 children. I work full time and have mirena coil.
In January I started getting dizzy and hot flushes so I went to docs and it was decided as my coil had been in nearly 5 years it was time a new one was put in.
The new one went in a few weeks later in February. Shortly after it was fit the dizziness and hot flushes were still there and tender breasts and a genuine feeling of being unwell plus pains in the abdomen.
I went back to the docs in april who asked me how my periods were. I said they had stopped with the coil. He said I had a slight temperature and most likely will feel better.
skip foward lots more trips to the docs for much of the same and worsening symptoms.
in june they decided to do an internal scan to check the coil. On the scan they found my coil strings had disappeared! And a small cyst on my left overy which they said was common. I was sent away.
on 31st july I had a massive pain on my right side went to a & e they started thinking appendix but then pain went so they sent me home with some lanzoprozole gastric restistant medication.
Skip forward exactly 28 days later the severe pain returned along with all the hot flush feeling ill. I went to docs this time he diagnosed appendicitis and sent me straight up hospital. They did emergency laraoscopy only to find nothing wrong with my appendix but a cyst this time on my right overy.
the surgeon decided to leave my appendix as it looked good and leave the cyst to be reviewed by a gyn doc and I have to wait for them to contact me.
Now I am 5 days post this laraoscopy and am still having the hot flashes and dizzy spells. I am also worried that in a few weeks from now its all gonna start up again. I feel awful.
Sorry for the lengthy post I just thought a bit of history would help. I just want to know if anyone has had something similar so I am not alone.
