Hi. I have about 11 Amalgams in mouth, with the last one placed probably 5 years ago. I am 26 and live in Chicago. I never had noticed any mercury problems due to these amalgams. However nearly 2 years ago I had a couple doses of hepatitis B & A (twinrix) vaccine and one dose of Mennigoccal vaccine, and after that I've had some possible mercury problmes ( tingling and aches in extremities, muscle aches & spasms, mild fatigue, heart palpitations, headache, eye floaters & light sensitivity). The pains aren't unbearable but I am always depressed of it and i can't focus on the things i want to do in life. So, do you think that the combination of the vaccines and the Amalgams in my mouth is causing me all these problems right now? That the therimesol in the vaccines has pushed the limits of the amount of mercury my body can stand?
I am thinking of removing my Amalgams in hopes that it'll help my health, but I am planning on a long trip to Asia (6months-1year) by the end of February so I am worried that in removing my amalgams my health will be worse than now, and make my trip not possible. And I am not even sure if it'll be of any benefit to me. But I think I want to do it and deal with the consequences later, because if I don't try I will live in sickness for the rest of my life. Any suggestions?
oh one other question, how long does one need to take dmsa and ala after complete removal? is it okay to remove 11 amalgams in one month time?
