I suffer from neuropathic pain, can I still get breast implants?

I suffer from neuropathic pain in my left arm and left breast. It travels all the way from my left breast into my armpit and down my arm, and occasionally my hand. This is often accompanied with heart palpations. I have done tests and I have been told that the pain & palpations is not from an injury, but is due to my stress/anxiety/depression. I am not on any medication, but occasionally take magnesium. I am bit worried to do breast augmentation because I don't want to cause any additional pain or problems.
