Re: Marie's Story of Mercury Poisoning
Hello. I am a 15 yr old female. I live in an area where they have had a problem with mercury before, but that was in the river, not in treated water. I have had various of the syptoms including:
Lumbago, severe muscle cramps, sever chronic migraines that are currently being treated, dental problems suchs cavities, root canals, and bleeding gums, severe depressions, dissoriented thoughts, blurred vision, paranoia, sucidal thoughts, dizziness, ringing in the ears, slight loss of hearing (like I'm underwater feeling), pain in the eye.
My mother is also experiencing:
extreme muscle cramps to the point of not walking, swollen joints, adult onset asthma, ringing in the ears, bleeding gums, temporary loss of hearing in one ear, severe clinicl depressions, anxiety, dissorietned thinking, and PTSD. I just want to know if you think that we should get tested. I stumbled onto a list of the symptoms of mercury poising when I was looking for treatment for my lumbago. The area in which we live has never said anything about the possibility of treated water being infected with mercury, but there is a big chance. The lakes and streams tend to be infected, and now that our sparta aquifar has dried up, we rely on those exact lakes and streams for out drinking water. So you can see why I was very worried when I found most of what we have on that list.
