My doctor was not surprised at all to hear that I was having trouble with it- she was not the doctor who put it in, by the way. She said that she has become more and more reluctant to put them into people and that it if it sounds "too good to be true, then it probably is". Makes sense to me. Have it removed. I went to an urgent car center over the weekend and had mine taken out. I feel better already. Not back to 100 percent, but better, for sure. good Luck!
