I had the essure coil implanted 3 years ago. For the last year I have been feeling tired, with no energy, muscle pain, can’t breath well sometimes and My legs hurt when I go upstairs, and have developed skin eruptions. I went to the doctor and was told that I had my liver enzimes very high and that I could have Lupus.
I went to another doctor for a second opinion and she sent me to the liver specialist and a reumatologist specialist, and have been told I could have Lupus or an autoimmune desease, cirrosis or hepatitis. I have had blood tests done, two biopsies, one on the stomach and one on the liver, an endoscopy, and an upper body ultra sound done. Everything has come back normal, but all my symptoms, the liver enzimes and the skin eruptions, my being tired and with no energy continues.
I don’t know what comes next, but I have just heard about all the damages that the essure coil has been causing woman, and I have come to think that maybe it’s the coil that’s making me sick.
I don’t know what to do, I want to have it removed from my body, but I just have told the reumatologist specialist about the coil I had implanted. The doctor has not heard about all the damage that the coil is causing women.
I would like to know if other woman that have the Essure coil implanted have had these same symptoms or some of them.
I have four children and I feel very confused and have fears. I need to hear from other woman If they have some or all the same symptoms that I have.
