heavy metal challenge

I became ill in May which I feel may be attributed to overexposure to toxic particulates. 24-hour urine test in July: Mercury was sky high at 321ug/L. It took 3 weeks for test results and I couldn't remember if I had eaten tuna right before my sample. 2nd and 3rd urine tests in August both came back under 4 ug/L. Free hair mercury test in August came back as .24 ug/g. Questions:
(1) If high level was from a chronic exposure or an acute high-level exposure to inorganic mercury in May and the level was 321 ug/L in July, could it have dropped all the way to 1 ug/L by August?
(2) If the mercury/heavy metal exposure was from an external source and I wanted to find out body burden with heavy metal challenge test, can I do so even though I have amalgams?
(3) Will the DMPS pull the mercury from my teeth and skew the results of a challenge test?
(4) Is it possible that I already had a good amount of mercury in my body and the particulates I inhaled triggered the mercury to become mobile and be excreted?

No, no, yes, and not sure what you mean by "particulates."
