Severity of symptoms depends upon the amount of fluoride ingested. These include abdominal pain, diarrhea, dysphagia, hypersalivation, mucosal injury, nausea, vomiting. Electrolyte abnormalities including hyperkalemia, hypocalcemia, hypoglycemia, and hypomagnesemia may occur. Neurological symptoms include headache, muscle weakness, hyperactive reflexes, muscular spasms, paresthesia seizures, tetanic contractions, and tremors. In severe cases, multi-organ failure will occur. Death typically results from cardiac arrest, shock, widening of QRS, and various arrhythmias occur.
The first occurrence of fluoridated drinking water on Earth was found in Germany's Nazi prison camps. The Gestapo had little concern about fluoride's supposed effect on children's teeth; their alleged reason for mass-medicating water with sodium fluoride was to sterilize humans and force the people in their concentration camps into calm submission. (Ref. book: "The Crime and Punishment of I.G. Farben" by Joseph Borkin.)

I can say this much, the city I grew up in does indeed add fluoride to the water, I've been out of there 15+ years and I can't nail down anything specific other than I feel much better. There are too many factors at play to say it's the lack of fluoride though.
Well from what I understand,.

I just started using fluoride-free, all-natural toothpaste, and my teeth feel cleaner than they ever did using mainstream brands. Haven't noticed any psychological or physiological changes, probably due to the fact that toothpaste represents such a small portion of the fluoride we're forced to ingest on a daily basis.
But hey, my teeth are cleaner, and every little bit of fluoride you can avoid helps.
