I am new to the metalsmithing trade. I built my bench in February
(07’) and have been primarily working with copper to gain some skill
being that it’s inexpensive.
In the process of working with the metal I’ve had many little copper
splinters and have probably breathed in minute particles of copper
from using rubber wheels/emergy papers etc… The splinters are gone
but they were probably dissolved by my body and perhaps assimilated?
I have been suffering from fatigue and “brain fog” for the past
several months. Does anyone have any experience with this subject or
think that it’s possible that I could have an over-abundence of
copper in my system? I’m no chemistry expert.
