Hi there. I am married and have four healthy children whom I adore and had been VERY actively involved with since their birth. My youngest is now 12, and oldest is 20 and a United States Marine. I was on every volunteer committee relating to my kids’ schools, athletic teams and social functions. I had the Essure procedure in 2009. Since then my body has changed significantly and not for the better. I began getting severe headaches out of no where just after that time. I couldn’t sleep more than acouple of hours each night which only made my headaches, overall fatigue and body aches worse. My immobility from the pain began my weight gain and depression. I am constantly exhausted, irritable, and just dragging thru every single task to no avail. I have been to several doctors and tests and scans over these years but they find no reason for these now severe and debilitating migraines, and othe symptoms. No answers. No remedies. No way to live. My migraines have magnified to anywhere from 3 days to 5 weeks straight of head thrashing pain, immobility, nausea, and tears. Med’s rarely help or break the cycle. I am in pain every day, just ask me what number I am on that given day. I have learned to live with my pain as much as possible just to be here for my family and try to function, until I hit number 7/10 and then I become immobile… I have lost interest and desire in nearly everything. No doctor has been able to give me much relief if any. I have since tried exercising and also clean eating hoping to relieve any symptoms at all. It has helped me a little, but not nearly enough to get my life back. My youngest was 6 when I began getting sick, and has really gotten the short end of the stick with my time, energy and involvement with her. I have to wonder if Essure had anything to do with my downward spiral…?
