bipolar cycling - was decreasing on its own by 2011 but I could sense solid ground under me with addition of thyroid
depression - improved within 3 days of starting B12 but eventually I would add a bupropion which helped to keep it that way, I am not entirely happy with this situation. I added it to improve brain-fog which it did. When I took it away I detected depression. I am not the first one to wonder whether psych meds can cause psych problems.
frequent urination - gone within 36 hours of starting B12. And I mean gone. From 5 times a night down to 1-2. From peeing every 12 minutes after supper to twice in the evening.
tinnitus - improved slowly and steadily with chelation. Small improvement as well with iodine
folliculitis, eczema, psoriasis - seem to improve with elimination of certain food but a guy has to eat something. I suspect that I will always have some skin issues
problems focusing - one of first symptoms to go with chelation visual illusions - left early in chelation
Strength to stand up - improved many fold with addition of hydrocortisone,
orthostatic intolerance responded to B12 therapy and treatment of mycoplasma (2015)
food sensitivities - have gotten worse with time. Especially since colon came out.
Un-refreshing sleep. This improved when methylation was addressed.
sexual dysfunction - turned out testosterone was low.
Positive Rhombergs Sign very gradually improved. I no longer lose my balance but still sway a bit.
Pronounced hand tremor and fingers moving involuntarily when fingers extended. Gradual improvement until symptoms no longer exist.
I am forgetting some stuff so I'll come back to this later.

About the Author
I carried a heavy mercury burden for decades. I won the fight against Bipolar Disorder and am winning the fight against CFS and histamine issues. I did not escape unscathed however and will carry the scars of my exposure to mercury for the rest of my life. I share my story knowing that few walk my path. I hope however that some of the ideas and approaches that I used to emerge from the shadows 90+% recovered will be helpful to others. My life was salvaged by Dr Google and the kindness of strangers, just like you.
