just a shot in the dark, but I was reading about alot of women who had breast implants,not silicone but saline. the shell of the saline implants are made of silicone. They had symptoms such as severe everyday headaches, neck stiffness,shoulder and upper back pain. they had heart palpitations, which I have,leg muscle twitching,extremeley cold hands and feet.also hair loss, which I also have. They say the silicone attacks the immune system. Some doctors agree and other doctors do not believe implants can cause these problems.One women said she had severe debilitating headaches. Since she had them removed they have become less frequent. I have seen specials on tv about women with these kind of problems and once they had them removed they slowly got better. I amwriting this because I have saline implants since May of 2005. Everything started in July of 2006. This really makes me wonder. Anyone out there have saline implants and get headaches, or any other systems.

Its funny I read this. I got saline implants put in about 5 yrs ago and ever since then I'v had arthritis, heart palps, migraines...Iam very athletic and never had any problems before. I always thought to myself that I know its because of the implants.Of course I've been to dr's and they have never found anything wrong.And they too say that the implants would not be causing this....I dont know...I think everbody is different and when you put something foriegn in your body it seems it would be natural for your immune systom to react...?

I have always been very healthy and suddenly woke up one day with headaches and migraines that never went away. They started in august 2009 and I had my saline breast implants put in in March 2008. Doctors cannot find anything wrong with me. I specifically chose saline because I didn't want any nasty side effects from the silicone. I am getting very nervous reading everything about saline implants and how they may be effecting peoples health. Did you girls just wake up one day with these conditions or was it gradual?

Kentc, not sure how to directly message you. This post is so old but if you see it somehow I hope you respond. Please let me know if you're headaches and migraines continued or they went away. I got saline implants in 2005, in 2006 I woke up with a migraine and I've had one every day since. No treatments, no preventatives, no meds help me. I am currently waiting on a disability decision because I lost my job of 10 years due to my condition. I believe my implants are causing all of this and I am getting them removed.

I agree, anything artificial in the body, the body tries to reject.

My father had a new hip put in, the bone started to grow over the replacement causing it to fail.
