I had the Essure procedure done on 1/10/2007, I was 30 years old. I already had 3 children and wanted something permanent and something where I would not be off work for too long. It was pushed on me and oversold.
I never thought much of all the problems that I have been gradually having and they are getting worse as time goes by. When I saw an X-ray from OB, the left tube Essure insert was bent like an L shape, he said “this is normal that my tubes were shaped that way and that my pain is from something else”. I ended up in ER and diagnosed with the shingles. I also get menopausal symptoms, I feel like I am on fire inside. I vomit for days for no reason, I have almost month long periods with 3 of those days bed ridden and passing large clots, I have a migraine almost every day and the days I don’t, just a headache. I suffer from confusion, insomnia, anxiety, irregular heartbeat, dizziness and I am always tired. I have pain on the left side mostly; I always feel swollen in my uterus and I feel a tugging and pulling sensation and sometimes like the sensation as if a baby kicks. I am never not feeling ill or tired.
I got an ultrasound yesterday; I am now waiting on results. I am on anxiety, cholesterol, depression and migraine medications. I would love to not feel like I am going crazy or that people think I am lying and acting like a hypochondriac. I just want to feel normal for at least one blessed day. Please Help!
