Im 24 years old, had paragard for almost 2 years, and had it taken out last tuesday. I always had bad cramps, heavy bleeding and infections. Then about a month ago I started having severe panic attacks and anxiety. I started doing research and found tons of forums that stated similar side effects which led me to get the IUD removed. Im still having bad anxiety and panic attacks, which is something I have never had before until a month ago. Im just wondering how long it took any of you to finally get over this. I have been eating healthy, taking supplements, trying to eliminate any copper toxicity that could be built up. I have had some hair loss but thankfully dont have any bald patches. I have also started to get so bloated everytime I eat. Its stays like that to, sometimes all day. Im just feeling horrible!!!! I dont know what else to do. I really cant wait until all this anxiety crap goes away. It makes it difficuly to work, or do much of anything. Any tips??? I would appreciate any advice out there.View Thread
