    I wear a medical alert, but it is not for FM/CFIDS/ME. I have those medical problems. Mine is ( code N), No CPR, NO jump starts. I want med. for pain only.

    I have been so ill for so long if it is my time to go, then let me go.

    I asked the pharmacist and she couldn't advise on it. My concern is that I take so many drugs that i don't think they could all be put on a bracelet.

    lyzzy, one idea is that you could list an emergency contact on your bracelet, saying "important medical history and list of medications, call ###-###-####" and you could have listed a partner, parent or close friend who has a current list of your medications and dosages, any allergies, etc.

    I thought about getting one that listed my emergency contact info, for the same reason lyzzy, I figured it would be easier to have a person for them to contact to tell them that info since it's WAY to much for a little bracelet. ;)

    Ellikers, that is a good idea, one I didn't think of. THey need to make special fibro bracelets for us.

    I wear one because I do not have blood pressure or pulse in either arm -- do not want EMT to think I'm dead when I'm just resting. If notified or accessed by internet all my meds (14) and medical history comes up. I list fibro and for this reason. When I was hospitalized due to vacular condition, they took me off of my pain meds and my sleeping meds. What should have been a couple of days in the hospital turned into 9 days in intensive care. I was finally released after I found a doctor (a psychiatrist no less) who listened to me. Got my meds and got out.

    Even if I did not have another issue, I would wear a bracelet just in case I was hospitalized again.

    Would it be appropriate to wear one stating for medical conditions call ### ### ####. (Primary Care Physician's phone number here)??

    On Medic-Alert they list up to five contact people including doctors and relatives.

    at my doc office they have a lil card to fill out saying all your meds u r on I suppose u could list your most dangerous coditions also

    usually if something happens they look in your wallet to find out who u r u could keep it with your id

    someone else posted on here about putting a number in your cell listed as emergency contact u could make sure that pesron knows all u r on

    what a scary thought to go to hospital and they have no idea what meds u r on they could give u suttin that does not mix scary...-kim
