Does anyone have any info about the connection between cfs and mercury posioning. I read somewhere here about the affects of mercury posioning and cfs and was just wondering if anyone ever got better after having the fillings removed. Does anyone know about Epstein Barr virus and the possibility of getting this virus from mercury exposure? My daughter has EBV for 8 months now and is getting sicker and sicker. She had silver fillings and silver caps put on her teeth about 8 years ago and her new dentist says they have to be removed. I am now wondering if this is why she is so sick, from mercury exposure. I also read that getting them removed can be more dangerous then from leaving them in. Does anyone know what would be the proper test to determine the level of mercury before having them removed? Thanks for any imput.
