Do Mercury fillings have a adverse effect on multiple sclerosis sufferers ?

Q.
Hello I have suffered with multiple sclerosis for some years now . I recently read an article saying that mercury can have adverse effects because I suffer with M.S.
How true is this? I have a real dental phobia and finding out this has made me worried.
I have just had a deep metal filling
should I be concerned or not because last time I had the metal filling removed and replaced with a white filling that’s why I am worried cause as i suffer already with MS i am scared this will make my MS worse. Is there any alternative fillings i can have that are completely safe or would i have to pay extra for non mercury fillings. 
Regards

A.
There is no evidence suggesting mercury based fillings cause harm, however anecdotal evidence has suggested some people are sensitive to these fillings, I would seek advice from your consultant and if you’re worried replace the filling with a porcelain inlay , As this will not affect your MS.
