Copper: Excess copper in the body is released in the blood and can accumulate in the tissues, particularly in the kidneys, eyes, and brain. When it goes to the brain, it usually deposits in nerves that are associated with movement, perception, and mood regulation. This causes a patient to lose coordination and become clumsy. Seizures, migraines, and cognitive defects may also result from excess copper.

Depends on the Dr.: Doctors are trained to listen to their patient, complete a physical exam, review the proper laboratory tests, and then make a judgment based on evidence combined with their prior knowledge of disease. If you don't feel like your doctor is listening to you, you should find a new one.
