1. Medical Stuff:

  • 3 Days of Home Rehab.
  • I had an OMM appointment on Wednesday, after setting up my classroom om Monday and Tuesday. My Psoas muscles needed to be calmed down, as well as my jaw and neck.
  • I had a hydrogen glucose stomach test at U of M this morning. It took two hours and is meant to see if the positive bacteria outweighs the negative. If it doesn’t, I will try probiotics.
  • I received my new medical ID bracelet in the mail. It’s from Road ID. I love it. It’s sporty, not too clunky, and I think they are really affordable.

My Medical ID

Written by Katie. Posted in Ehlers-Danlos Awareness, POTS Awareness

Getting a medical ID bracelet was something I knew I needed, but was not sure where to go to get one.

A lot of people told me to get a USB one that could hold all of my medical information, but when I researched more, I read that many hospitals, doctors offices, etc. refused to use them because of the risk of causing viruses to their computer systems.

1.  Medical Stuff:

  • 2 Days of Home Rehab.
  • 1 Day of PT.
  • I finally got a medical ID bracelet.  I ordered it 3 days ago and it came today.  I went with the simplest, cheapest bracelet I could find.  It is like a Livestrong bracelet with a stainless steel plate.  The plate fits five lines of text.  I paid $15 total including shipping.

Sorry, guys. You can't have my husband's digits :)
