Hello, I have had chronic pain along the upper left side of my gums for
over a year.  I had 2 amalgam fillings replaced with amlagam.  I had no
cavities or pain in those 2 molars.  My new dentist said they should be
replaced.  She drilled very quickly and roughly before using Allbond 2
(which she did not light cure)and the amalgam . I swallowed a lot of old
amalgam.  Before I left the chair that evening I began to experience an
electrical shocking in my mouth (I have no other metal in my mouth except
amalgam, and by rights I should not have had this electro galvanization)
and a terrible burning sensation which I have to this day.  I had those 2
dental amalgams replaced 17 days later, again with amalgam. I had no
shocking.  After 10 dentists and 3 specialists I have found out that I am
suffering from neurological pain.  I am taking Effexor for an
anti-depressant, due to the chronic pain.  I have been told that another
anti-depressant may stop my pain altogether and when I am taken off of it
my pain may not be there.  Has anyone heard of this?  What
anti-depressants are there on the market that would do this.  And what do
you think caused the damage? Thanks.  Marny
