My dentist removed mine as he discovered problems with them. He used a rubber dam to be sure no mercury would be lost down my throat. When I had just a couple Amalgams left, he decided to remove them . He felt they likely had problems he couldn't see yet, as the other old fillings all had decay. As he worked, those two were also having decay. The deal was that insurance would cover the replacements IF the fillings were bad, but if there was no noted problem, they would not cover it. I would consider having these removed by a dentist trained in using the rubber dam IF I were having health trouble that might be related to them.
Forgot to mention - I've also been very tired these past 2 weeks. Pretty much sleep, eat, and sometimes go to work if I'm up for it. I also lost 6lbs since December when my symptoms started. I'm 5'9 and usually 128.
So now I'm 95% sure I have celiacs. I've been going through so much pain and sickness for the last 3 months.... Feeling like I'll never get better. I'm a 25 year old otherwise healthy, active female.
I finally had a colonoscopy Thurs. Waiting on results. My GI wants to rule out crohns. I have yet to talk to him about celiacs.
I have a rash on inner thighs by vagina and goes around to butt, slightly itchy, burns, some look like pimples, some red dots, almost perfectly symmetrical.
Other current symptoms - alternating constipation/diarrhea with black specs, neck pain like whiplash, ears constantly popping/clogged (about a year) , vision flickering like I'm blinking but not - multiple times an hour, left knee pain when pops, low platelets (128), nausea/stomach pain after eating certain foods usually vomit, sharp pain bellow belly belly button & to the left, pins and needles in legs/arms when sitting multiple times a week, bright red dots like cherry angomas, confusion with thoughts.
Thanks for your input
I also have a lump feeling on my throat. It is the side of my Adam's apple. My endoscopy showed http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/eosinophilic-esophagitis/basics/definition/con-20035681, H Pilori positive, gastritis, and hiatal hernia. No wonder I keep clearing my throat. I apologize for the link mid sentence. I just wanted to provide some potential reasons for some of your issues.

Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you? Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉 Do you know how to fix it? You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do
Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Here is the link if you have never watched it.
