Brief Answer:
Shouldn't be related to implant

Detailed Answer:
I read your question carefully and I understand your concern.

I wish you had been more precise about where the titanium implant was inserted, titanium implants are used in different areas, dental, hip etc. I am gonna assume you mean a dental implant.

In any case (even if in another area) I do not think the titanium implant is responsible, it doesn't cause such a combination of symptoms like yours. If a dental implant then perhaps an allergy might be considered for the mouth sensation, but doesn't explain the electric current feeling. Also I see from your past questions you've had abnormal sensations in the mouth even 8-9 months ago, which I suppose is before the implant.

I would say the most likely cause for those symptoms is anxiety. Some blood tests however, to screen for metabolic issues, infections, anemia are recommended (routine tests such as blood count, ESR, liver and kidney function, electrolyte panel).

I remain at your disposal for other questions.

Hi I m 45 years old a smoker, this week I have had my heart beat faster and skip a beat when I check. It started on Thurs. at work it lasted about 10min mid day then again late that night as I was sitting and relaxing. the next couple of days it started again while sitting and getting ready to eat and just after drinking water it seems to be lasting a little longer each time. does the skip of a beat damage your heart, cause it stress? I have read that stress brings it along is there anything you can do to help calm this down
