Again with the Mirena hatin'! Different patient, of course. NewFNP is trying not to take it personally.

Clearly newFNP needs to do a neurology CME to try to understand why the brain would cause a normally reasonable enough woman conclude that her headache of three days duration had its etiology in her IUD which newFNP placed a full five months ago.
And then, what stops someone from just popping a Tylenol or two? NewFNP finds this to be such an irony in her clinical population. No one hesitates to borrow a penicillin or a couple of tetracycline when they have a cold or eczema or whatever. But to take an over-the-counter analgesic - not gonna happen. Better to just head on into the free clinic and get some Tylenol there.
