dental fillings can contain mercury
she might benefit from blood mercury testing
but mercury toxicity most likely is not what is causing her bad stomach problems.
she should see a GI doctor and get an upper endoscopy scope down into her stomach to check for stomach ulcers and to check for H Pylori bacterial infection in the stomach
has she seen a GI doctor yet?
