When I was on the pill I had terrible symptoms which included my hands and arms going numb. It got to the point I could only use the computer for a couple of minutes at a time because I couldn't type. I stopped taking the pills and the numbness went away. 8 months into the Mirena now... it's becoming a problem again. I keep having to take breaks when doing anything with my hands to shake out the tingles. I even had to take a break while stirring pudding yesterday because it was too much.

After reading other posts on here about Mirena, I am angry at the doctor who pushed so much for me to get this stupid thing. She assured me the hormone dose was super low so no risks or side effects.

I'd get off it. Now. It could be blood clots forming.

I agree, get off!!! It sounds like you're very sensitive to the hormones and blood clots are not something you want to mess around with. They can be life threatening.
