This article, Siliconosis: A spectrum of illness enumerates the different symptoms, that might appear far away from the site of implantation.
Musculoskeletal pain syndrome:
- overwhelming fatigue
- arthralgias (joint pain)
Other symptoms include:
- chronic flulike state
- chronic headache
- irritable bowel syndrome
- elevated cytokines
- skin rash
- alopecia (hair loss)
- Sjögren's-like disorder characterised by xerophthalmia (dry eyes) and xerostomia (dry mouth)
- short-term memory loss,
- paresthesias (burning or prickling sensation usually in the hands, arms, legs, or feet)
Over the years, symptoms are getting worse, and no diet or lifestyle-change helps if the implants remain in the body.
