I recently started having classic symptoms of FM. The purpose of this post is to figure out if my theory is correct. Mercury in dental fillings (so-called amalgam or silver fillings) is hazardous to the human body. Eight of the eleven symptom criteria set by the Center for Desease Control for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome are well-known symptoms of mercury poisoning. Other symptoms of FM can be caused by chronic mercury exposure. A person can get mercury poisoning not only through amalgam fillings but also through shots (allergy, flu, etc. So please respond if you have fillings or have been taking shots or eat a lot of sea food (well-known source of mercury). I hope I am not breaking any rules by this post, I am just trying to figure this desease out.
