Mesh devices may be to blame for autoimmune symptoms

The news comes from a rheumatologist from the University of Alberta who believes that symptoms such as chronic fatigue, cognitive impairments and muscle pain can be linked to patients who have been implanted with mesh devices.

Jan Willem Cohen Tervaert, director of the Division of Rheumatology explains. 

“In my practice, I studied 40 patients who had mesh implants and found that almost all of them had symptoms such as chronic fatigue, cognitive impairment known as “brain fog,” muscle and joint pain “fibromyalgia,” feverish temperature, and dry eyes and dry mouth,” Tervaert said.  

“Of those patients, 45% developed an autoimmune disorder such as lupus or rheumatoid arthritis. And in the patients who had allergies before the implant, they were significantly worse after.”
