Mercury Poisoning Symptoms

Mercury comes in several forms and people react differently to it depending on what kind of mercury and in what manner they are exposed to it. When people are exposed to smaller doses of organic mercury over a long period of time, symptoms may take time to appear. A person may exhibit the following symptoms:

  • Trouble walking
  • Blindness or visual impairment
  • Problems with memory
  • Shaking and tremors
  • Numbness or pain in the skin

If someone is exposed to elemental mercury in large amounts at one time, symptoms will appear immediately and include:

  • Metallic taste in mouth
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Vomiting
  • Sudden cough
  • Bleeding and swelling gums

Exposure to mercury can cause long term brain damage and is particularly dangerous for pregnant women.
