Breast implants and PMR
I have been following discussions on PMR trying to see similar issues as my own. My doctor still is not 100% sure PMR is my diagnosis but is treating me with Prednisone. It has been 3 months since the onset of debilitating pain. I have had a bi lateral biopsy for GCA, that was negative. A MRI of both femurs looking for Myositis, negative results.
At present we are dosing down and I have been pain free at 20mg.
Here is my question
I have breast implants since 1989 that have not been a problem since a week ago. I started feeling pain in one and had a 3 d Mammogram with ultra sound immediately. It has been determined there is a rupture.
My doctor says there is not enough conclusive research to link implants to PMR, but there are women like me who believe otherwise.
Early on I saw an infectious disease doctor who I asked randomly (before my mammogram) if my implants could be related. He also said there is not enough research.
Is anyone out there with breast implants who feels the connection I do?
Best to you all!
