Mercury Poisoning & Hashimoto's

I've been diagnosed with Hashimoto's. I've been on levo therapy for three years. My symptoms are getting worse and I've developed fibromyalgia. My antibodies are near 6,000, TSH near 5.0.

Someone please help. What the ***l is causing this?

I keep gently pushing to get my doctors to investigate further. I am only 28. There is no reason why I should be feeling this way. Is this pituitary or adrenal tumor? No one is listening.

I recently found out that many autoimmune diseases might be related to amalgam mercury poisoning. Has anyone here ever been tested for mercury poisoning or had their fillings replaced?

Please help!

  • Don't be gentle. Scream at those ***n doctors until they get it right. You are important, and your health is important, and I think you need to tell them to figure it out, or you'll take your money elsewhere, and seriously think about going elsewhere.Doctors are humans, and prone to their own biases. For instance, I gained 18lbs in three days on a trip, and had to come back in the car wearing my nightgown and unable to fit shoes on my extremely swollen feet and legs.I saw the doctor, and he took 5 minutes with me, not listening to me, and finally wrote an Rx for "Jenny Craig."I was crushed. Luckily, the ***k never closed the door during my exam, and another doctor heard the whole thing. She examined me in her office, and ran some tests, and found out that I had acute kidney faliure. I was admitted to the hospital that night and would have died without treatment. Take care, and good luck!
