I had minera inserted 3 weeks ago and have had spotting ever since, which I understand will go away eventually, but the cramping is pretty much everyday, very low, and restricts even being mobile on a bad day. I never had frequent cramping with my periods so this is almost unbearable for me. I am not sure if I should get it checked or removed, or just wait since it has only been 3 weeks.

It's unfortunate no one responded at the time. I hope your cramping has resolved.
I haven't used Mirena myself but the link below has reviews that you may find useful.

I had the Mirena inserted 6/23/15 and am also experiencing major cramping... as in doubled-over, near tears kinda pain.
I have endometriosis and iron-deficiency anemia, so I don't know if these are contributing factors. All I know is that I got the Mirena to try to alleviate symptoms. So far, it's NOT helping! I have an appointment with my doctor on Tuesday, so hopefully I'll have a better idea. I'll post again after I talk to her!
