It may have been caused by the mercury fillings. But don't rule out other stressors as contributors.
For a lot of us...it takes a while to understand what a "stressor" is and what types of activities it includes. Because of this, we continue to do things that we we don't cosider to be stress, but they are.
Did you do any of the following to extreme?
I seen this online about the connection between mercury and adrenals:
- Mercury accumulates in the adrenal glands and disrupts adrenal gland function.
- Mercury builds up in the pituitary gland and depletes the adrenals of both pantothenic acid and vitamin-C. Stress and the presence of mercury will have a very negative effect on the adrenal production of critical steroids.
- Adenylate cyclase activity in the brain is inhibited by micromolar concentrations of lead, mercury, and cadmium.
- Mercury causes a defect in adrenal steroid biosynthesis by inhibiting the activity of 21a-hydroxylase. The consequences of this inhibition include lowered plasma levels of corticosterone and elevated concentrations of DHEA and progesterone.
- Because patients with 21-hydroxylase deficiencies are incapable of synthesizing cortisol with normal efficiency, there’s a compensatory rise in ACTH leading to adrenal hyperplasia and excessive excretion of 17a-hydroxyprogesterone, which, without the enzyme 21-hydroxylase, cannot be converted to cortisol.
- The Inhibition of the 21-hydroxylase system may be the mechanism behind the mercury-induced adrenal hyperplasia.
- Both lead and mercury can precipitate pathophysiological changes along the hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal and gonadal axis that may seriously affect reproductive function, organs, and tissues.
- Mercury not only causes a suppression of adrenocorticosteroids that would normally have stimulated an increase of PMNs, but at the same time also affect the ability of existing PMNs to perform immune function by inhibiting a metabolic reaction that destroys foreign substances.
