Thanks for your query.
COuld you let me know why was the Mirena inserted in the first place ?
The symptoms you describe could be due to either a heavy period or menstrual cramps, or due to misplaced Mirena, if you had these symptoms initially for which the device was inserted .
Try and feel the thread.
Better would be to consult your healthcare provider and to confirm if the Mirena is in situ.
take care, and feel free to discuss further.

my mirena was inserted due to heavy periods because i take blood thinner due to problems with my heart in past.

If you havent ever been able to feel the thread, it is all the more reason to see a doctor and confirm if it is in there safely.
