Mercury toxicity symptoms can encompass any and all body systems and functions. My personal experience with Hg (mercury) poisoning makes the trials of Job look like a vacation in the Bahamas.
Exposure to this heavy metal compromises liver, kidney and gallbladder, brain function, gut health, heart function, coagulates the blood, destroys the immune system. Adrenal and thyroid go down. Hormones go haywire, neurotransmitters, too. Candida yeast, viral and bacterial infections proliferate. Enzyme systems don't work. And that's just the short list...
I've met Hg poisoned people who ended up in wheelchairs, unable to speak or feed themselves, one a woman who later recovered once her amalgam fillings were removed and EDTA chelation was administered. Hg poisoning damages all body systems. It destroys lives.
Did you know that Hg ALSO depresses your body's ability to detoxify? That's right, its very presence impedes your ability to detoxify it and anything else! If you want mercury out of your body, you have to TAKE it out!
Add to the above the fact that mercury toxicity symptoms are exacerbated by our exposure to many OTHER serious poisons.
One example: We are ALL born with lead in our bones. Any time bone remodeling occurs (normal break down of old cells and build up of new bone) we are exposed to lead. As we get older and lose bone density in varying degress depending on the individual, we suffer lead exposure. Lead in our bodies is a major cause of signs we often attribute to aging. There are, of course, many more compounds that exponentially increase the severity of mercury toxicity symptoms.
They were EVERYWHERE!
In my case, Hg poisoning affected virtually every aspect of life. Liver and gallbladder issues, brain fog, failing eyesight, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, lichen sclerosis, hormonal imbalances, low adrenal and thyroid function, anxiety and depression, severe joint pain, allergies to almost all foods, skin rashes, candida yeast infections, bacterial and viral infections, and more - need I go on?
For 4 years, I went to holistic doctors - usually a couple times per month. No relief. DMPS IV treatment nearly killed me. I got 5 medium to large mercury fillings removed by an excellent dentist - but was so sick by then that the exposure suffered as a result of the removal sent me into a death spiral.
My holistic MD's didn't know what to do. One said, 'You don't want to be a 'difficult case.'
I remember walking in and sitting down to consult with one MD I had been working with for a few years. She looked at me and asked, 'What would you like to do today?' Hmmm...!
A wonderful physiatrist (MD who does prolotherapy and other advanced physical healing) was looking at my chart one day after I described all the horrific pain and symptoms I was suffering. When he saw how the mercury reading went all the way through the red zone and off the chart, he shook his head sadly. 'They should never have given you DMPS - it was the wrong thing,' he said.
That man was the first doctor who cared enough, had compassion enough to actually reveal to me that another doctor had made a serious mistake - a life-threatening mistake. (Most MD's protect their colleagues). He asked, and I promised, not to mention this to the holistic MD's. THIS WAS THE PIVOTAL MOMENT - that sad shake of his head that touched me to the core - where FINALLY I realized that my other doctors had made a HUGEMISTAKE!
I finally got it that it was I that must be the healer and find my own salvation.
Over a period of 10 years, I healed ALL of that. I even got rid of the lichen sclerosus - for most women a death knell to ever enjoying intercourse again. The only treatments I get are from a doctor who is an international expert in PRP (platelet-rich plasma) and other therapies that heal and maintain joints. My quality of life is exceptional - AND I'm now 15 years older!
Amalgam fillings: Not only are they a toxic waste dump polluting your body. Beyond the potential to destroy every quality of life you value, their evil extends to wrecking your dental health over the long term - cracking teeth and leading to infections and root canals. Mercury fillings are NEVER inert no matter how many decades you have them. I was told this by an EXCELLENT holistic dentist. Mercury exposure is aging on steroids! Need I say more?
Swimming in chlorine. Are you an inveterate swimmer as I was? Do you swim in chlorinated or brominated water? If so, you're asking for it! Chlorine and bromine are harmful halogens that knock down thyroid function and deplete iodine. Thyroid function and iodine are VITAL for detoxing heavy metals among many other things. Swim in clean remote lakes or ocean (if you can find them), or get a high-quality ozonation system for your swimming pool.
Stress, stress, stress - as heath-conscious as I was, I needed to be more so. Heal your emotional conflicts (that means facing them, going into them, and being willing to let go of your most entrenched belief systems if needed to achieve wholeness). Rest and sleep enough. Exercise rigorously, but not to excess (if your body is damaged or your energy level compromised by your fitness program, it is too much). Take Amino Acids - superb for all bodily repair, neurotransmitter function (read mood and mental optimization) and lasting vitality. and vitamins and minerals to metabolize them.
If you are stressed, take EXTRA good care of yourself, take more supplements, get MORE rest.
Too many carbs (see ketogenic diet). Even what are considered the healthiest - organic apples in season, etc. Carbs of ANY origin tend to stress the body and are addictive. High amounts are inflammatory and harmful - ESPECIALLY sugar, honey, maple syrup, barley malt, breads, pasta, processed foods and grains, but also beans, nuts and sweet fruits. Interestingly, as the (relatively) mild signs (joint pain, tiredness) of Hg poisoning increased prior to my diagnosis, I found high-fat, moderate protein, low-carb (essentially a ketogenic diet) to help. Healthy animal fats from pasture raised dairy and meats protect cell membranes, nerves and other tissues from damage by heavy metals.
I now thrive magnificently on a real ketogenic diet with a small amount of low-carb plant foods.
Eating lots of fish. Now I don't eat any. Why? Sadly, fish has become a compromised food - with the exception of some in very remote areas such as the northern tip of Norway. Why? Mercury, pollutants, and contamination of gene pool and waters by farm-raised, GMO, grain-fed 'Frankenfish.'

What were the deciding factors that got me out of that near-death experience?
Resolve to heal is number one - never give up.
Research and skepticism - keep digging deeper and don't believe all those claims that there is a single product or program that will 'cure' you within a month. There isn't. Healing takes time, and detox is for life, especially if you suffered severe exposure.
Keep 'upping the mix,' i.e. tweaking and improving your personal protocol.
Think 'globally' i.e. how is my adrenal function affected by toxins in food and environment, my pain level, the company I keep etc. affecting my thyroid? Are my joint pains due to myriad infections/parasites from lack of ability to detox caused by low thyroid? And on and on....
