Muscle Disease from Metal Implants

Are You Allergic to Certain Types of Metals?

To my mom, Patricia’s surprise, she wash incredible off the chart health symptoms that were erratic. The only consistent symptom that persisted was fatigue. Months before diagnosed with Inflammatory Myopathy was had been proven as a direct “unrelated” side effect from the toxic microscopic ions circulating throughout her bloodstream, Mom experienced days of severe fatigue. Other days, she felt somewhat productive. However, the longer it took to connect the dots to what was going on, the more often she felt as if she were wearing cement boots and a heavy suit of armor.

As a patient, we understand your frustration in attempting to get a specialists to understand. The numerous people to contact us are reporting that usually more times than not their primary care physician DOES believe their metal joint replacement – whether knee or hip or dental implants (which my mother did not experience) is the root cause of the body gradually succumbing an almost “melt down” process that appears totally unexplainable. This has been reported by several hundreds (and what my mom experienced) after extensive tests of all types at top health clinics in the United States continues to state “we can’t find any wrong” and “it is not possible that the metal joint replacement in your knee, hip, dental implants, or surgical clips could be causing your mysteriously health issues.

Frustrated is stating it lightly how my Mom felt. No answers. No hope was offered. Condensing write offs as if her input was not worth considering. No, we are not clinicians. But it was her body and she was able to articulate how she felt. We had several specialists that did not treat my Mom with the best bedside manners. We also had some terrific medical doctors that were just as stunned when there wasn’t a test that could identify her overall health situation much less revealing the single core issue.  

The following symptoms are NOT text book related based on medical protocols but include some of what she experienced:

Rash – Varied pain associated

Warmth around incision

Tenderness

Metallic taste

Muscle soreness

Fatigue – At times worse than others

Headaches

Stiffness

Loss of Appetite

Swelling

Restlessness – Irregular sleeping

Declining health without tests revealing anything

Joint Looseness or clicking with knee or hip movements 

The next step we recommend based on my mom’s experience is a M.E.L.I.S.A. Blood Allergy Test to learn what types of metals you are allergic to. Personally, I wish this was an automatic protocol before every metal implant. It would save a tremendous amount of pain and costs related to metal implant/joint replacement failures if metal allergies were pre-determined for implant candidate.
