From 1996-2002,I was exposed to arsenic dust at work (also
cd/be/chrome VI/lead/other heavy metals via dusts/fumes,torch cutting
fumes/diesel fumes, solvents/sealants/isocyanates/chromate spray
paint, benzene, etc...)
I have been experiencing recurring lower lip lesions since 2002. Lip
turns white and sheds tissues, no pain but can feel something
different when it occurs. (biopsy 2002 states
leukoplakia/hyperkeratosis and was told to observe it).
Originally, also had conjuctivitis times 2/eye
hemorrhage/hyperpigmentation on left hip for over a year/continuing
hand numbness/massive hemorrhage/low blood counts/respiratory
probs/nasal sores/bradycardia/finger cyanosis times 5, etc...
What do I do about my lip? Is it related to arsenic exposure, and
what should I be doing about it now, since it is getting worse???
Can a 24 hour urine test and/or chelation help at this point?
Please help me..Thank you..
