Hi I joined this forum many months ago and have found it very useful. However although nervous thought it best to post my own post about specific issues to see if any others out there may be able to help.
I have not had a particularly good time since this all began two years ago and therefore this had left me with anxiety and a difficultly in controlling many symptoms, and doctors not really willing to address the symptoms. From someone in there 30's who was physically fit and generally healthy I have gone to feeling like an exhausted wreck three times my age. Having fought and fought for answers along the way.
Although I have many questions I though I'd start with one. My periods on warfarin are horrific not only do they last approx 10 days per month the heaviest two days I can hardly leave the house (which is not ideal with a small child) and they leave me exhausted with a constant headache or migraine. I fought and fought about this and eventually a few months ago found my iron was so low I needed an iron transfusion. This did help, the mirena coil has been finally suggested and I wanted to hear from anyone that has used this and how they felt in general about this. I am nervous because I seem to get lots of side effects and am unsure whether half the time they are warfarin or APS related. Is the mirena coil the best option and what side effects not necessarily related to APS but the coil itself have people found. I have had friends who used this coil but hated the side effects.
Sorry my post is so long, even for just one of many points I'd love to raise to find some answers and relief....
