Breast tenderness, tired, cold sweats, headache. X-ray showed inflammation. History of breast implants. Suggestion?

I have had an xray because of left breast tenderness (pain) constant for about 2 months the xray showed some inflammation. Also had an EKG , which was normal. I am scheduled for a mammogram tomorrow. I have been feeling very tired, cold sweats, major headaches ...and the pain goes around to my back mostly on my left side. I am 44 year old smoker, with a history (I think, I was adopted) of heart disease. I also have breast implants. I cant seem to get a doctor to take time to listen to me, I sick of feeling sick. Any suggestions?

Cosmetic & Plastic Surgeon 's  Response
The one thing that needs to be checked is whether you have any capsular contractures or not since you have the implants in place. This can give rise to breast tenderness as well as to inflammatory changes in the breast. Let your plastic surgeon clinically assess you to note if the breast tenderness is due to the presence of implants or not: that is the single most important thing at this point of time. Also, you might need a Holter assay to note if there are any heart ailments since you give a history of heart disease.
