Migraines, Blurred Vision or Buzzing In Ears Due To Mirena

The Mirena IUD, a birth control device manufactured by Bayer, has caused serious health complications in thousands of women. Now the Law Office of Jean Sutton Martin PLLC is investigating the link between Mirena and a condition known as pseudotumor cerebri (PTC).

Also known as idiopathic intracranial hypertension or benign intracranial hypertension, PTC is a condition which mimics a tumor in the brain, but there is no tumor. Instead, the condition causes a build up of cerebrospinal fluid causing exteme pressure in the skull. Some women report hearing a "swooshing" or "wooshing" in their head which is actually the fluid building up. Many women report severe, migraine-like headaches and blurred vision.

The symptoms pseudotumor cerebri include:

• blurred vision

• dizziness

• double vision

• nausea

• vision loss

• buzzing, wooshing, swooshing in ears

• headaches

The Law Office of Jean Sutton Martin PLLC is investigating whether the hormone released by Mirena, levonorgestrel, may cause PTC in women. Other products containing levonorgestrel warn of pseudotumor cerebri and intracranial hypertension, but Mirena does not.
