Silicone Breast Implants Tied to Fibromyalgia, But More Evidence Needed, Study Says
Fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) are more common in people with silicone breast implants than in those with systemic sclerosis (SSc) and no implants, according to a study. This suggests that silicone may trigger immune responses that increase the risk of developing either of the conditions. However, researchers noted, more studies are needed to fully interpret this relationship. The study, "Silicone breast implants and depression, fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome in a rheumatology clinic population," was published in Clinical Rheumatology It was thought that breast implants did not trigger any immune response because a sturdy membrane separates the silicone from the adjacent tissue. In recent years, however, some local immune responses were observed around breast implants and a relationship between silicone breast implants and autoimmune syndrome induced by adjuvants (ASIA) — a recently discovered condition in which exposure to a trigger leads to autoimmune responses — was suggested. Some ASIA symptoms are similar to those of fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) — for example, chronic pain

  1. Hmm it seems like your site ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
