I have had a really bad couple weeks.  Last week my anxiety just went nuts after a couple months of just being fine.
Also last week I bit my tougne and it made a sore, so I used oralgel for the pain, well I used way to much over a 2 day time line
and got so sick from it, I overdosd on oralgel, I had to call posion control at 4am and talk with them and they felt like I would be okay and no need for a trip to the er but I felt SOOO SICK!  I had painic attacks waking me at night last week and just felt bad all week.
Then yesterday I went to the obgyn to have my IUD removed and they could not find the string, so they went fishing for it and could not get it out. I was stressed. First of all It hurt bad them fishing for it and second of all, All I could think about was oh crap they are going to have to put me to sleep and cut it out. I was so scared. I have to go back in a couple weeks for another doc to try again.
Now I am panicing bad and my anxiety has hit the roof. I am still having pain from this yesterday and that is freaking me out. I called the doc today about the pain and they said just take advil for it, Still freaking out!
I again woke up in an attack last night freaking out and at this point I have made an appt with my reg doc to talk about my anxiety. I used to have xanax for my attacks but my doc took it away cause I had been doing so well for so long. So now I am just upset and stressed. I think I just needed to get this off my chest so forgive me for venting. I also can just imagine the IUD tearing and ripping every organ in my body. I reget ever having it put in! Sorry this got so long, but thanks for reading!

Hey Crying,

I am sorry you are having so many problems at once.  Have you talked with your pdoc to see if perhaps you need to have a new Rx for the Xanax.

I don't like to see you so upset and in pain.

Thanks, When I go to see him I will tell him rather it be xanax or something else I need something to help, cause I just cant seem to calm down during an attack, the worry, the raceing heart rate, the sweats, the sick feeling, is just more than I can take sometime.

That would be more than I could handle, for sure. Sorry you're going through all this, but it'll come back around and you'll feel better soon. When's your appointment?

I'm so sorry that you are going through such a tough time...way to many things going on at once for you...that throws me too.  Do try to talk to your doc and see about some xanax, even if it's just until you get through this rough period.  Remember that the bad times are only temporary, you'll get back to where you were!  Hang in there and keep us posted!

Dear Crying,


I just wanted to let you know that your anxiety regarding your IUD is not uncommon.  I am not knowledgeable about IUD’s, but I have two medical implants and both times, I was required to have a psychiatric evaluation with respect to respect to being able to mentally handle the thought of a foreign object being implanted.  When I first had my intrathecal medication pump implanted, I began to ruminate over and over about having to cut it out in case of an emergency.  It was a horrible thought that I just could not get out of my head.  It took me awhile to get comfortable.    Make sure you discuss this with your doctor.  I would definately revisit the need for xanax with your doctor.  It sounds like you need to break this cycle ASAP.  Gook luck and I understand.

Thanks guys for all the support, I am slowly feeling better about what is happening and what will have to be done and the chance it might have to be cut out, which I pray they can get the iud out without surgury. I was able to sleep last night without having an attack so it was a good night and this morning has been pretty good to.
I go in on Friday morning to take with my doc about the xanax. I hope he just says okay and hands over the RX, cause I really do need something to help me out. It has been 5 months since I had to use it and when I did use it I only had to use it about 2-3 times a month so a bottle of 30 pills would last me all year.

Wow your brave! I have had a hard time with having this IUD, I really dont think I could handle having medical implant. I can see why they have you go threw that to make sure you can handle it. Thanks for letting me know I am not alone.
