Oh my holy moly ... I have had the the Mirena for about 5 weeks now and other than dizziness and spotting (previous post) was okay until last week ... persistent achy dull burny twisty horrible pain all weekend causing lack of sleep and knock on effect symptoms. Then mahoosive period appeared on Sunday and tonight I have spent hours on the floor sobbing unconsolably in sheer excruciating pain. I have taken cocodamol, ibuprofen, used heat pack, ate chocolate, had cuddles and chocolate and nothing is helping however after many hours it has eased very slightly. I feel like my womb has been doused in petrol, set on fire and twisted and twisted and twisted whilst a piece of barbed wire is pulled back and forth across my pelvis - anybody get me? I'm not wanting to blame the coil and shout about how awful it is as I know it takes a while to settle and that's fine but I have also never ever been prescribed pain relief for the endo either and now I think I reaaaaaaallly need it - over the counter stuff just isn't cutting it ... going to try GP tomorrow but can anybody recommend certain pain relief over others? Sorry for such big story, feeling very sorry for myself xxx
