I am sorry to hear about your daughter's medical problems.  None of the issues you mention have been linked to saline breast implants.  I hope that she is under treatment with the appropriate medical specialists to address her conditions.  Best of luck.

There have been no studies to date that link silicone or saline implants to any disease or syndrome.The devices are FDA regulated, and to become approved, they have gone through extensive studies.I wish you luck in helping your daughter.

Saline breast implants are not linked to fibromyalgia

Saline and silicone gel breast implants have been thoroughly studied and there are no links to fibromyalgia, autoimmune disease, or any know human disease. Sorry about her health, but her breast implants are not a cause.
