Dear Vicki Cobb,
Years ago a disease was identified like rheumatoid arthritis symptoms due to the immune reaction to the silicone breast implants but later any direct relation is not found with the breast implants. Probably you have some kind of autoimmune or rheumatism like disease. It is better to be checked by an internal disease specialist and if your condition will not respond to medical treatment then you should check your implants for rupture. Good luck.
