    My doc (who doesn't believe FM exists) has ordered a hair follicle assessment. Not a drug test like for narcs, but for other "chemicals". Has anyone had one and was it helpful?

    It showed high Mercury. I think this test can be helpful. Hopefully it will be for you.

    Do you have any idea what all it covers besides mercury? Did she have freaky symptoms too?

    Maybe my sis will read this and help me answer your question. I know it covered more than mercury, but can't remember what. She has Lyme disease and CFS. She does have some weird symptoms.

    I just sent her a regular email to help with this question.[This Message was Edited on 10/12/2006]
