It is possible (but unlikely) that your implant is causing your distress. The Mobi-C is made up of cobalt, chromium, and molybdenum which are common implant metals (which also makes up many total joint implants like knees and hips). I believe you can undergo allergy testing to see if you are sensitive to those metals by visiting an allergist.
