— Martin Schmidt, Esq.

SAN DIEGO, CA, UNITED STATES, January 23, 2018 / -- The common birth control device Mirena® IUD has been associated with potentially life-threatening conditions called pseudotumor cerebri (PTC), increased intracranial hypertension (IIH), and intracranial pressure. Manufactured by drug giant Bayer, the Mirena® intrauterine device is a birth control used by hundreds of thousands of women worldwide. Although rare, PTC and IIH can have dangerous consequences if not caught early. Attorney Martin Schmidt, of the leading national injury firm Schmidt National Law Group, wants women to know about these potential complications and that he is on their side to fight against these potentially harmful devices.

Martin Schmidt, Esq. has been fighting for the rights of women against Big Pharma’s profit-driven practices for decades. He has led the fight against Bayer’s Essure–-a potentially dangerous permanent birth control device that has been linked to numerous complications in women all across the country. Mr. Schmidt was the first attorney to file an Essure lawsuit against Bayer in California in late 2015, and helped the lawsuits move forward in court despite Essure’s preemption status, which shields pharmaceutical companies like Bayer from litigation.

Now, Martin Schmidt is standing up against Bayer again; this time for its Mirena® IUD. Mirena® is an intrauterine device (IUD) that has been associated with potentially dangerous health problems in women. In addition to numerous common side effects like pain, changes in bleeding, and ovarian cysts, some women have also suffered from the debilitating conditions PTC and IIH after receiving the device.

To diagnose these complications, doctors typically require a brain imaging scan such as MRI or CT, or a lumbar puncture. There is, however, a cheaper, noninvasive test that is recommended. According to Schmidt, a general eye exam performed by most optometrists or ophthalmologists can be performed to identify papilledema, which can be thought of as early stage PTC or IIH.

“We always recommend those who are experiencing any of the symptoms of PTC or IIH, including moderate-to-severe headaches that worsen with eye movement, double or blurred vision, nausea, vomiting, ringing in the ears, brief episodes of blindness or light flashes, neck, shoulder or back pain, that they at a minimum go see their local eye doctor," said Schmidt.

Martin Schmidt and the attorneys at Schmidt National Law Group are ready to represent women who may have been harmed by Bayer’s Mirena® IUD. Call 800-631-5656 today for a free consultation and to see if you qualify for a Mirena® lawsuit.
