There are a whole host of possible symptoms of fluoride poisoning, many of which are associated with the fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome.   The following list is taken from the Fluoride Toxicity Research Collaborative (emphasis added): 

  • Arthritis – stiff, painful joints with or without swelling; painful feet in morning
  • Asthma – especially after showering in chlorine-filtered water
  • Bony, painful lumps where tendons and ligaments attach to bones. Calcifications of connective tissue on X-ray, especially with pain and reduced range of motion
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) – especially if it lifts when you spend time in an unfluoridated city or switch to distilled water for drinking and cooking
  • Cold – temperature below normal, feeling cold all the time, feeling cold soon after a hot bath or shower
  • Dental fluorosis (white or brown spots on teeth) or yellowed teeth
  • Diabetes [and hypoglycemia] – worsening symptoms
  • Diabetes insipidus (a kidney ailment) – excessive thirst, increased water consumption that does not relieve thirst, dry throat and irritated eyes, and frequent, dilute urine, especially at night, with normal blood sugar findings

  • Fatigue, weakness and brain fog
  • Fibromyalgia (severe muscle weakness and/or pain with extremely sore spots on various bony areas)
  • Food intolerances that seem to come and go
  • Gastrointestinal problems – irritable bowel, nausea, diarrhea without apparent cause, heartburn and upper bowel pain especially after drinking a full glass of water

  • Kidney disease – worsening symptoms, kidney stones
  • Skin – hives, blisters, rash on stomach or back within an hour of drinking fluoridated water or after bathing or showering in chlorine-filtered water
