Medi Alert Question
I am asking if anyone out there knows or can help find out if wearing a medi alert bracelet here in Spain will be looked for or recognised.
There must be lots of folks like me who have severe allergies etc which would preclude them from various medical treatments in an emergency.
I, for instance, am extremely allergic to aspirin and NSAIDs and if given these drugs it would mean extreme anaphylaxis. I don’t really know how to begin to ask these questions of the health authority’s.
Does anyone know a paramedic they could ask. Or know the leading health authority contacts here in Andalucia?
This may help save someone’s life out there.
Please reply to Digamextra or directly to gwenroyle @ gmail dot com

Recommendation –iPhone & Apple Care
Having had Apple products for many years, I too had similar problems, and until this person advertised, I did not know where to go either.
his last week I contacted Marcus, and arranged to see him. He was very understanding and knowledgeable.
He went through all my concerns and problems with my iPhone and MacBook, corrected each one, and only moved on when I understood what I had done wrong.
He spoke normal English (not computerese!) and right now, everything is working fine again.
I can thoroughly recommend him without hesitation, and would also add that his charges for his expertise are very reasonable.
