    I have a friend who had breast implant in for three years.She started feeling fatigued,flu like symptoms,pain etc.To make a long story short implants had burst causeing the silicone poisoning and then it all led to fibromyalgia.She has had implants taken out for about a year and is feeling somewhat better.She still deals with pain fatigue brain fog all symptoms of fibromyalgia. I too have fibromyalgia makes me wonder if were all be poisoned??
    Good luck and take care.

    But my cousin had implants and now has Lupus, they claimed the implants caused the Lupus. This is going back about 20 years, so don't know about the current kind.

    that implants could cause/contribute to FM or any illness, for that matter. As much as I would have loved to have been blessed with nice, voluptuous breasticals, the thought of having some foreign matter in my chest scares me to death. I think back to when I used to wear copper IUD's and wonder how healthy that was for me.
