I work for a lab in NC and we do all kinds of heavy metal testing. There is a kit you can buy online if you don't have insurance or just want to do it and take it to your PCP. You can go to http://www.healthhometest.com/product_info.php?products_id=35 and order it. You can have all of your symptoms with heavy metals in your system, then again it could be from some medications you are taking like iron or some antibiotics. I hope this helps you.
Let me know if you have any questions.
I get a metallic taste in my mouth and I have acid reflux. That can be a symptom of it. Tastes like I have been sucking on a penny. Also dizzyness and nausea. Any back pain? what about sensitive gums, sore throat?
I get the same thing....off and on. It comes and goes and is very frustrating. No I am not pregnant. I did however read that certain meds.can cause this. However, my doctor does not seem to think it med. related. Also, kidney stones and kidney disease. Have you had a blood work up?
