IUD causing the problem?

I have had a Meridan IUD since 3/05 and since 12/07 I have had severe recurrent pain in my right hip at the groin. I do have a slightly swollen lymph node at the site, but the all the doctors I have seen do not believe it is an issue.

I also starting having continuous pain in the rt. hip since 5/08. They have ruled out a GYN problem through an US and pelvic exam.

Could the IUD be causing local inflammation which inflamed the lymph node and is now pressing on my femoral nerve?

I have had no problems w/ the IUD other than insertion, which was excrutiating! I had a vagal response and went into shock....I believe it was due to the pain.

I spot every few months, but this time it hasn't quite been the same...it has lasted a little longer and the spotting came and went instead of just spotting for a week.

I am thinking about taking the IUD out just to see if it the cause, but I'm not sure.

I have been worked up for all the other avenues as well... ortho and lymph. I am off to see a Rheumatologist, but I don't have high hopes.
