An injection can be painless, if it's done very slowly (the injecting part, not the needle jab)

If it is MS, you will need special treatment and periodic controls, almost always for life. But first, you will need a good diagnosis. You should consult the best neurologist you can afford. CLC and Alemana are the best (and most expensive) options. The second option would be UC.

Does your friend have dental amalgam fillings with mercury? Or had any removed? I'm looking into that now, since I need to have some replaced, and I came across this questionnaire:
http://centerpointedental.com/forms/Mer ... nnaire.pdf

MS is on their list of symptoms from mercury poisoning. The list is very long.

If anyone here decides to get their amalgam fillings removed, I think it's better to get it done by a dentist who takes special precautions when removing the old fillings. I'm looking for one now, and I found a couple so far in Santiago:

I'm hoping to find one in Coquimbo, so if anyone knows of one, please let me know.

I haven't watched the video, or read the whole page, but this looks interesting:
https://iaomt.org/resources/dental-merc ... sclerosis/
Multiple sclerosis (“MS”) was first commonly identified in the nineteenth century during the time frame in which amalgam fillings came into common use. Unpublished anecdotal evidence has indicated that a significant number of, but certainly not all, MS victims who have their mercury/silver fillings removed resolve (spontaneous remission) or improve gradually. This anecdotal evidence has been supported by published studies over the course of the past 50 years.

Unfortunately the process to remove the fillings releases a large dose mercury which the anecdote doesn't seem to account for.

That's exactly the problem I've been researching, and why I mentioned finding a dentist who takes the right precautions. Most dentists seem to be aware of the problem, but don't seem to think it's a big deal. And that might be ok for most people. But not everyone. Maybe I should've stressed that part a bit more.

Right now I'm looking for the best options for getting them removed. And the best way to support my immune system, to get rid of the mercury already in my system, as safely as possible. I have one filling that needs to be replaced soon, and a few more that can't wait much longer. I'm thinking one at a time might be the safest way, unless I can get myself to Santiago.

Probably they don't think the dose during removal is a problem because they don't think mercury fillings are a problem in general. Every effect is dosage dependent: if the mercury from the fillings is a problem, then the higher dose at removal is a bigger problem. For example, if chelation protects during removal, then it protects all the time that the fillings are present.

We can't have it both ways. Eventually you'll have to decide which is worse.

And to make things even more complicated, I was reading this discussion earlier:
https://healthunlocked.com/parkinsonsmo ... m-fillings
where one person wrote:
DO NOT attempt to chelate or detox mercury if you still have amalgam fillings in your mouth. the mercury will go right to your brain, and you will be much worse. have them removed properly first.
I don't know yet if that's true, but I'm keeping it in mind while I research.

In my case, I don't have an option to keep my fillings, since they're damaged. So it's just a question of the best way to remove them. And considering what I know about my health, and the types of problems mercury can cause, I think I'll be much better off without them.
