I began suffering with tailbone pain without injury approximately 5 months ago, could it be my mirena?

I am 27 years old, white and female. I am 5’9 and 215lbs. No prior history of surger. History of 2 vaginal births with epidural both times. Family History of Lung cancer, skin cancer, breast cancer, CHF, diabetes, heart attack, COPD, degenerative back disease, and color cancer. I began suffering with tailbone pain without injury approximately 5 months ago. I cannot sit for long periods of time. I have no pain when standing, walking or while lying down. I do have the mirena and it was placed approximately 2 1/2 years ago. I have also experienced fatigue, increased appetite, and memory fog since having the mirena placed. Could my mirena be causing my back pain?

Hi and welcome to question doctors.com
Back pain and weight gain and increased Appetite are among side effects of IUD mirena ..consult your gynecologist for a different method or other contraceptive.
