After having two chilren back to back and a husband who suffered a massive heart attack at a very young age I decided that having more children was not an option. Dealing with the two little ones (10 months apart) and my husbands recovery was very hard for our entire family. I am a mother of two, a wife, a homemaker, with a full time job and and part time cleaning job. Needless to say, I need all of the energy I can get. Shortly after my second daughter Grace was born I decided to have the essure procedure done at my GYN’a office in July/2013. I was hesitant since I never heard if this type of procedure but I was assured that it would be fine and they no longer ‘tie tubes’. So this seemed to be my only option and since the recovery time was almost nothing, I agreed. About 6 weeks after the procedure I started to feel extremely exhausted. Most people would contribute my exhaustion to being a mother if two small babies but that was not the case for me. Both if my children are wonderful sleepers, 12 hours each night/7:00p.m. to 7:00 a.m.. Anyway, I thought ok, I will go along with that theory but as time went on my problems became worse. I have extreme joint pain, my lower back is in constant pain, stabbing pains in my right side that have me doubled over, always feeling tired, dizzy, headaches, not to mention that I am becoming extremely depressed because I feel so bad and ofter have a hard time picking up my children. I have also experience hot flashes, heavy periods lasting longer, and have gotten cold sores every months for the last four months. My primary care phys. hady blood chalices but everything was fine. I am not sure what to do but I want to be the fun, up beat, happy person I once was. All of these symptoms have me feeling very sad and moody. My poor husband is trying to deal woth his recovery and here I am full of complaints.
