A friend of mine had her blood tested and her copper levels were high. Her Dr discussed copper toxicity with her and how common it is these days.

Here's a partial list of symptoms the article states may be linked to copper toxicity.

Hyperactivity
academic underachievement
Learning disabilities, ADHD, autism
emotional meltdowns/frequent anger
ringing in ears
anxiety
depression
poor immune function
sleep problems
poor concentration and focus
hypothyroidism
anemia
hair loss
chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia
migraines 
agitation, panic
over stimulation, racing thoughts
restlessness
insomnia
severe PMS, dysmenorrhea
endometriosis and fibroid tumors
autoimmune disorders

"Copper is also central to cellular energy production, and thus many patients with fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue conditions related to mitochondrial dysfunction have disorders of copper metabolism."
