Medic alert advice
I'm intending to get a medic alert 'thingie' -- I reckon the combination of 100% PM dependent + anaphylaxis of unknown origin with Epipen + rivaroxaban + Advance Decision makes it sensible. (Might also add in some stuff about MRI with the PM if I can ever get a straight answer about it... Yes/No/Maybe doesn't really cut it but I'll ask a separate question about that.)
My dilemma: I've been told that wearing the alert on the wrist is the best option and to be frank, that would suit me best because I'm not a necklace sort of woman (I find them incredibly uncomfortable).
However, on my left wrist I wear a man's analog watch older than I am (and I'm 61). with a leather strap. It was a present from my OH, so I can't not wear it (and I love it very much, so I'm not giving it up).
On my right wrist, I wear a Fitbit -- not bothered about the heart rate measurements, but it reminds me to move every hour, tells me how well I'm doing at improving my level of daily activity, wakes me up silently and gently in the morning -- which I'd also like to keep wearing.
Both watch and Fitbit are constanly surrounded by purpurae and eccymoses where normal arm/wrist movement has resulted in pressure on the skin (courtesy of the rivoroxaban). I'm therefore reluctant to add yet another wrist band into the equation. However..
The alerts that I've found that attach to a Fitbit strap are quite long -- 24mm aka 1" -- and I have very small wrists, so there won't be space for the alert to lie flat, which will cause damage to the blood vessels anyway.
Does anybody have a Fitbit with a medic alert attachement? How confortable are they? Am I worrying about nothing?
Is there an alternative -- maybe a replacement strap for a Fitbit Charge 3 that can incorporate the medic alert info?
My fall-back may have to be yet another wristband...
