    I have heard talk of heavy metal poisining but never seen proof. Never really feared lead like many. I have pulled lots of solid lead waterline out of the ground and there are thousands of miles of lead joint pipe still in use today.
    Heavy metal pousoning would show on blood work. I wouldn't be too concerned.

    Thanks
    Do you know what kind of blood work i would need to look at lead levels?
    I heard UGLs sometimes have a problem with this so figured i'd throw it out there

    (BUN) and serum creatinine, liver ALT values.

    Other than that all i see is the specific lead exposure test.

    Shit though we all got high creatinine levels and many of us high alt levels after orals. It might be worth it to request the specific test.
    I think I have every symptom of lead exposure but seizures and death.
