Breast Implants: Q&AAsk a Question
Should I Remove my Implants?
I had saline implants done 2/07. Surgery went well. In 1/08, I started having strange physical symptoms...jolting awake with electric shock every 20 mins each night. Internal tremoring centered behind my sternum and radiating out my back, up my neck/shoulders, sometimes out my fingers and toes. Strange adrenalin like surges (not heartburn) in the same area around the sternum. extreme dizziness and almost feeling like I’m going to pass out. All the symptoms get worse at night. I'm unable to sleep from all the physical tremoring and have been living on Ambien since June 2008. In October 2008, I also started having intense pressure from the back of my lower head, moving up the sides, into the temples and then into the sinuses above eyes and below. Mostly intense pressure, but sometimes causes headaches. Extreme sensitivity to sound, light, touch and smell...but not pain, just more like electrical. The only pain I experience is in my back and up the back of my neck...more like burning muscle pain...I also have extreme concentration problems, I cannot focus, I am foggy, have an unclear head. With the head pressure in October came a loud "whooshing" noise in my right ear that seems to be related to my carotid artery. I started having ALL the tests done over the course of 2008. I have had urine tests, blood tests, MRI's of my brain, neck and back, ultrasounds of my upper abdomen, ultrasound of my carotid artery, EEG's and EKG's. I have had every test come out ok. Doctors have ruled out MS, Parkinson's or anything cardiac related. A couple of months ago, I started reading stories about women who have had similar symptoms and related them to their implants. I've talked to a plastic surgeon and he of course can only give me the prices to remove and tell me that I will be unhappy if I remove them. I would never really know if this is related unless I remove them and my symptoms disappear. I don't want to unnecessarily have surgery, but if they are causing all of this, then I have to entertain the idea of getting them out. All the medical docs are saying stress and anxiety...but I know my body. ALL of my symptoms are there 100% of the time and that has those same docs scratching their heads. I'm being treated with anxiety and antidepressants, but nothing changes the physical symptoms. I know stress is contributing but my gut is telling me that isn't what started it all. I was perfectly healthy until now without ever even having to take an Advil.
Can anyone offer me any advice or help on whether there can be a link to my saline implants and my symptoms?
