The fluid that surrounds the spinal cord and brain is called cerebrospinal fluid, or CSF. Cerebrospinal fluid supplies the brain and spinal cord with nutrients and removes impurities while protecting and cushioning these delicate structures.
Normally, after circulating, CSF is reabsorbed into the body through blood vessels. But if too much fluid is produced or not enough is re-absorbed, the CSF can build up and cause pressure within the skull, which is an enclosed space.
This pressure can cause symptoms similar to those of a brain tumor, including worsening headache and vision problems. Untreated pseudotumor cerebri can result in permanent problems such as vision loss.
There have been many allegations against Mirena that its intrauterine device (IUD) has caused pseudotumor cerebri in many patients who have received them. Some of these complications include:
- Vision Changes, Double Vision or Vision Loss
- Dizziness, Nausea or Vomiting
- Neck Stiffness
- Tinnitus (Ringing in the Ears)
- Forgetfulness and/or Depression
Lawsuits have now been filed against Bayer, the maker of Mirena, accusing it of making a defective product and causing injuries as a result of migrating in the uterus after implantation. Bayer is also accused of ignoring evidence linking pseudotumor cerebri to birth control devices and failing to warn Mirena users about the association. If you or a loved one have been injured after receiving a Mirena IUD, you may be able to file a lawsuit and receive compensation.
