Warning Call your health-care provider if you have symptoms of organic mercury poisoning or if you know you have eaten foods that may have been contaminated with organic mercury.

Tip Mercury from seafood stays in the body for many months, but once you stop eating seafood, the level of mercury in your blood will most likely drop slowly down to a low level. Step 2: Report seizures Report any seizures, which are often seen with exposure to large doses of mercury. Step 3: Keep note of other symptoms Keep note of other symptoms such as skin numbness or pain, uncontrollable shakes or tremors, inability to walk normally, blindness or double vision, or memory problems. Step 4: Make an appointment Make an appointment with your doctor to report your list of symptoms and concerns. Step 5: Blood and urine tests Ask your doctor whether you should have blood and urine tests to measure mercury levels if you think you have consumed mercury-contaminated seafood. Did You Know?
