Finding The Answer: US Woman Warns About Danger Of Breast Implants

Finding the answer: Local woman warns about danger of breast implants
Headaches, anxiety, depression, joint pain, insomnia, memory loss, inflammation, heart palpitations, chest pain, gastrointestinal issues, acid reflux, fatigue, fibromyalgia, vertigo, hair loss, restless leg syndrome…
These are only a few of the symptoms Bridgette Taylor experienced over the past few years and after what felt like forever, she finally realized the cause. Now she’s warning other women with her story.
Taylor had gotten breast implants in May 2015. By August things had gone south.
“I got my implants in May, in August I turned 40,” Taylor recounted. “I constantly blamed – you know they say when you hit 40 everything falls apart. Well I just thought that was the same. When I hit 40 I literally felt like I could start seeing things happening and going on. I constantly thought it was just getting older.”
Because it was so easy to blame her symptoms on something else, Taylor can’t pinpoint when they first began but believes they hit hard right after her husband left for Egypt for work.
“At that point, I started developing major symptoms like brain fog, not functioning, heavy fatigue, feeling like a brick was on my head,” Taylor said. “It’s just indescribable. It’s crazy.”
Taylor finally visited with her regular doctor who ordered lab work to see if they could find the problem.
“You know your body and I knew that something was wrong,” Taylor said.
Her lab work showed that her RH factor was high and so she went to see a rheumatoid arthritis specialist. She was then diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia.
