Mirena (levonorgestrel) 4 2 yrs w/sore c-section area during period w/ mild lower back pain. Feels like strained muscle pain. Caused by swelling of cervix/uterus?
Get an OBGYN consult: It sounds like you need to visit your OB/GYN right away. You may need to have a cervical exam, pap, r/o uterine process such as fibroids or endometriosis. The Mirena (levonorgestrel) should be working better so best that your OB/GYN rules out contraindications and makes sure your symptoms are better controlled. Low back pain may or may not be unrelated. Talk to your GP doctor about it. Good luck. ...Read more

Unlikely: Some people think you can only get shingles once and some others think you can get it more than once. It is unusual to get shingles in people under 40 years old. Mild systemic symptoms are more associated with shingles, such as fatigue, low fever, more of a mild viral syndrome. Chills, nausea, muscle aches would be unusual. To my knowledge gulain barre has not been associated with shingles. ...Read more
I'm allergic to nickel as found in jewelry. Can I wear chrome plated jewelry without itching or breaking out?
Chrome over nickel: Purely "chromed" jewelry should be fine, but some are actually chromium-plated over nickel(making it more durable), thus once the chromium is worn-off exposing nickel you can still have trouble. Typically the reaction is slow and so if you start to have any trouble with the chromed/nickeled product, stop using asap and you should be fine. Topical steroid helps the rash. Consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more
