I'll also review the symptoms for you. This affected me for over 20 years. My symptoms were muscle/joint pain, gum disease, loose teeth, urinary problems, lower back pain, chest pain, skin rashes, and headaches. These pains and troubles got worse over the years, to the point where at times walking could be difficult (when my lower back pain was severe).

When my tooth broke and exposed one mercury-silver dental amalgam about 8-1/2 years ago, I had also tingling at the end of my hands. Also at this time, my headaches were severe. I had horrible back and neck pains. No longer would Dristan take away the pain. I was very scared. I asked the dentist to take care of that exposed amalgam first. After that tooth was taken care of, and replaced with a crown, my pain and discomfort returned to "normal" levels of just my ordinary troubles. For some reason, after the last of eight amalgams were removed, a small section of my lower right knee cap felt like a severe bruise. You couldn't see anything unusual with the knee cap; it just hurt and fortunately didn't affect my walking or running. It took years, before this sensation went away.

Right after these amalgams were gone, I felt like a burden had been lifted off of me, so I began to run faster. But, I found that I still had some problems. So out of frustruation, I experimented with anti-mercury agents, and got horribly sick. I missed about a week of work; I thought I was going to die. I had a low grade fever, and was extremely sleepy most of the time. At one point in the very beginning, I felt like I wanted to vomit and eat at the same time. Other times, I felt like I wanted to get up and run and sleep at the same time. It was like my nervous system went completely crazy.

After that, I never experimented with these anti-mercury agents again. I just stuck to my common-sense healthy diet and exercise program. Recently, I have been eating raw cilantro (a plant used as a spice) which reportedly helps remove aluminum, lead, and mercury from the body.

In the Spring of 1978, a doctor told me that I was too fat, too old, for me to take 10 aspirins a day, and that I shouldn't run more than a hundred yards. Today, I run nearly 20 miles a week. Yesterday, I ran my 6.5 mile run so fast; within 4 minutes of my personal best. I've also started increasing my weight lifting. I push myself to do better all the time, as I continually feel better. It has been a slow process, but very rewarding.

I hope that I have helped by describing my symptoms.
