erik Archer on Aug, 18, 2014:
A close friend lost her left hand from 'complications'asociated with the implant and no one will take responsibility-her first symptoms were numbness- get it out!
From this study (3 weeks ago):
I am epileptic or was as a child. I have not had a seizure in about 3 - 4 years now. I recently went to have my implant changed. This is my third one. All of a suddeni am experiencing frequent déjà vus, headaches and my anxiety is growing.
I eat incredibly healthily and exercise most days. No drugs, hardly any alcohol and a strong life.
Realising that perhaps my implant may have something to do with this and I have just never realised it!
