Mercury filling removal a cause?

Hi everyone,
My symptoms started in June of 2012 - I get twitches and pops everywhere. They first started in my legs and arms, and at times they are at different spots - face, under eye, neck, back, butt, stomach, hands, feet, and on and on. My newest twitch, my right eyeball, started a couple weeks ago. Unfortunately I had several mercury fillings over the years, and in the last few years have developed cavities beneath those fillings, so have had to have several removed and refilled with resin. While I'm happy to have some of them gone (just had one today, and have to have another one next month), I worry that the removal of them is exposing me to toxic levels of mercury, and perhaps is what caused my twitches in the first place? I know you can go to special dentists to have mercury filings removed safely, but I can find none in my area that accept my insurance, and don't have the money to pay out of pocket (have also read several bad reviews about the one dentist in my area who practices such dentistry). And though I wish I could, I can't just let the cavities go, so don't have a choice. Also, when I look up ways to detox from it, there is so much information and the volumes and amounts of supplements they recommend taking are so high I worry that could cause side effects. I guess my worry is that perhaps these twitches, which have gone on for 2 1/2 years now, might have been caused by the removal of my fillings, and maybe each time I have one removed, my chance that these twitches could develop into those three letters we all know and dread is rising. I guess I'm looking for reassurance that probably no one can give me, and maybe there is no correlation. Maybe I would have developed this anyway? I have noticed when I'm stressed or haven't gotten enough sleep, they often get worse, so I try to work on that. Is it possible for someone with BFS to go from just twitches with no other symptoms to A--? Is BFS like a ticking time bomb for some people, where it morphs from benign to much worse? Are there environmental triggers that can change benign twitches to A..? Very worried and could use any help/reassurance any of you have. Thank you!
