Ok so I'm 24 years old with a 6 year old son and a 6 month old daughter..I work 40 plus hours at a private practice as an ultrasound tech. I got my mirena in 4 months ago at my 6 week check up after my daughter was born. Then a month later exactly I got my nose pierced. A couple of weeks after that a dear friend at work noticed my eyes getting yellow but she didn't say anything to me. I noticed it about a month to a month and a half ago myself. After my fiance and sister said something about it I finally decided to get the doctor at my work to check it out. He ran a CBC, CMP, hepatitis A, B, and C, Eppstein Barr. Well everything came back normal except the Bilirubin was high. The number was 4.5 when normal was below 1. Mind you all my liver functions were normal. So my doctor couldn't figure it out and at the time 2 weeks ago I didn't have insurance. So we rechecked the bilirubin and broke it down into direct and indirect. Well the indirect was higher so it was pointing towards a blood disorder such as hemolytic or aplastic anemia so my doctor wanted me to go see a hemotologist but I had to wait for my insurance so he has been keeping a check on my bilirubin for me. Well just got approved Thursday so we are getting everything together to see the blood doctor. Well today one of the nurses told me that an iud can cause jaundice because her doctor bothered to tell her that when she got her's put in Thursday. So I've been obsessively doing my research on the internet and reading all the side effects. Well some that I have been having but I just attributed to other causes are 1. Depression, nervousness, anxiety (I attributed these to the fact that I had a lot on my plate including all the stuff I listed above plus trying to study to become registered in ultrasound so I wouldn't lose my job after a year of being out of school) 2. Not being able to sleep and nervousness (but I thought this was due to the fact of stress and me being on phentermine for 2 and a half months but again i don't think my jaundice is due to this either because my liver functions are normal and my doctor don't think it is them either) 3. Decreased sex drive (due to stress and not having the same libido because I have a 6 month old and with my son it took forever to get my libido back to normal) 4. I've read a lot of people say they just felt like killing their significant others and it pretty much ruined their relationship (well again I thought this was due to stress) 5. My left lower back pain and left pelvic pain (well i thought the back pain was due to the type of work i do such as helping patients up and down from the table and sitting up and also leaning over them and the pelvic pain from menstruating). I'm suppose to go see this hematologist next week but i don't want to spend a whole bunch of money on him (because my deductible is $3500 a year) if this isn't an anemia or blood disorder and also i don't want to see a gynecologist because if it is the iud causing my jaundice then they'll make me take it out and this is an easy and convenient way of birth control. But after reading all these stories and side effects of the iud it has got me SO scared and it's now Saturday and obviously won't be able to see a doctor until Monday or later. Any insight on this?? It makes me wonder is this jaundice plus all these other symptoms related to the iud or is the jaundice a blood disorder and the other ones are from stress??
