The yellow flame showing the lead being present doesn't mean that it is burning out, only that it is present. If you had strontium in the glass it would show a red tone.

Don't let the doc's be "stumped " Jay. I think if the problem is getting around to other workers, it is a union issue and possibly one for OSHA although I would hold that card a while. Headaches are very real and almost always are the result of something being not right. Pursue it thru the union, not personally. Don't become a target.
Reading your list of illnesses is like reading the munchhausen syndrome, but it's real.

Even so, the lead is always there and often takes a dusting form, particularly in a cullet. It's dangerous. While it can't be absorbed thru the skin, it can be breathed.
