I too have suffered stmpyoms of fybromyalgia since having pip implants in 2005, for the past 2 years i have been in agony every night with back pain but spreads into my hips and upper back cant really pinpoint an actual place, i feel like i have been in an accident everynight ,i wake up with stifness and unable to sleep past 4am the pain continues and slightly subsides when i get up, i have had an mri scan to see what the problem is but hardly anything going on apart from minor wear and tear and one lower joint i have had spinal injections in that area that havent worked either. i have pins and needles in my left arm that started last year and muscle spasms behind the left implant, my gp didnt know what it was but i still have it,as well as tirdness and my memory is fogged as well as the ripplling which is horrible. i have had an mri scan on the implants and as yet havent been told if they have ruptured but i am seeing the consultant next week to see about the removal and replacements, i really dont want them but i was very depressed before i had them and will look deformed if i dont have them put back in . for the pain during the night i take naproxen before i go to bed thats all the doctor will give me but they dont help at all. I too have read that it could be an imune system problem caused by the silicone used and also the silicone outer shell even if they havent leaked.! the site did say patient s improved when the implants were take out but not replaced. hope you get sorted ! x
