I had the Essure done 2 years ago. During the procedure the left tube was in spasms so the device would not go in. The DR. kept trying, forcing it in, for about 30-40 min. of agonizing pain. Finally the coil went in. I had severe cramping and bleeding for about 2 months . Then a strange spotting started, nothing like I had ever had before. I did the dye test. The coils took. The spotting continued and about 6 months after the coils were implanted I was sent for an ultrasound were it was discovered that ( like other women) I have Fibroids (witch is scary for a person with a family history of Uterine cancer). The cramping went from a constant pain to on and off pain and when it is on it is on.. very sharp and always comes with bloating and a strange, peach colored discharged. I went on thinking all was well and it was just something I would have to deal with. Then it became hard to do my workouts ( witch I love) I found myself out of breath. I started to get terrible heartburn, especially when working out, and nasal drainage. I was clearing my throat so much it was raw and hurt all the time. My family DR. did a lung function test, witch was normal, but I still ended up with an inhaler. I was sent to an ENT. I left with a diagnosis of GERD. I was put on medication that didn’t help so they put me on Flonase. That helped somewhat. Now nothing helps not even the additional medication I take, Nasacrom. I have got allergies to things that never bothered me before. It is hard to breath in certain situations,like around someone who smokes ( never bothered me before), I have constant nasal drainage. I had to see an eye DR. because for no reason the near perfect vision I had suddenly went blurry. It cleared up after I stopped taking the GERD medication ( witch causes rebound acid so bad I get sick to my stomach. Sometimes I can’t eat at all), but now my vision has decreased and sometimes is fuzzy. My periods are only about 5 days but the first few I bleed heavy with large clots, much more than before Essure. In the last 6-10 months my hair, witch became somewhat brittle after Essure is very brittle and falling out. I have back pain, pain near my kidneys, burning during, after, and before, urination, cloudy urine at night. Pain in my joints, Rashes, itching, headaches so bad you want to crawl into a hole ( I never got headaches before Essure). Bloating, depression so bad you want to go back into the hole.I have a hard time remembering things and sometimes I feel like I am in a mental fog ( witch I was the one who remembered everything before this hell) , Physical fatigue to the point that I have not had a good workout in months because I just don’t have the energy or strengh to do it, and I was a very high energy person, a go getter, always working out, always working… before Essure!! Decreased sex drive, witch in my lively relationship has taken a toll on us both!I didn’t consider Essure as the culprit for these symptoms until I saw an advertisement for Essure. That is when I learned of the Nickel( witch I have a mild/moderate allergy ). I wasn’t asked about that. I started looking in to it and that is when I saw what others were saying and found that I have all the symptoms of an allergic reaction as well as Metal Toxicity. I don’t know if I will be able to find a DR. to take them out, or even one my insurance covers. I just want my life back, my health back, I just want to feel great like I did before Essure! What I have worked so hard for 10 years for, a healthy body, mind, and spirit!I just want it back…. I feel like Essure stealing it from me!
