I don't know Janie, but I've just read an account -with before and after photos of a woman with Fibromialgia. She is a reporter in NY, I believe.
She put up a website of her before and after progress after having her amalagram fillings removed. Her face was all distorted before, and now it is beautiful! She gradually lost all her symptoms-- and is thankful she has had the fillings removed. I am going to try to find the link for you, Unfortunately I didnt book mark the page.
I found it through Google.com's search engine.
This woman went to a holistic metal free dentist in my area-- I believe the same one that I made an appointment for May 2005 to begin my filling removal.
I feel you wont be hurting yourself by getting the fillings removed. Any dentist you talk to will brush it off as hysterical paranoia, however -- I know one woman who has a daughter who just completed dental school. This daughter must know something, as she encouraged everyone in her family to pleeeeeeease get their metal fillings replaced.
