Hi dear
Are you experiencing symptoms like cough , chest pain , headaches , blurring of vision or any other symptom??
No it is not fatal if timely treated.
You are a Science Student , so i would list the treatment also :
It is usually a chelation therapy using D-Pencillamine. There are other options also.
Get yourself checked once at a nearest hospital.
Good Luck!!!!!!
