I know when i first became ill about 8 years ago, I was wild for information and one thing that came up was the mercury. Of course my doc dismissed it (along with all other possibilities). I have never been tested, nor do I know how they test it? Is it expensive? I have heard they can do one sort of test with sample of hair. If so, can this be done on your own with some sort of test kit and sent to a private lab? I know many docs say that dental fillings can not be a problem. But my mouth is FULL of old fillings and many have cracked and required work done. I know there are certain ways that dentists are supposed to work on them and even dispose of the fillings. What do you all think?
