DO NOT TRANSPORT TO THE HOSPITAL
Hospital Emergency rooms are not able to treat the condition, so unless my vital signs are showing something critical, please do not transport, but rather communicate with my Immediate Contact.
Condition: I have a condition known as Desert Storm Syndrome with associated nerve damage that occurred during exposure to unknown mixture of nerve agents. Also known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Gulf War Syndrome, chronic multisymptom illness. Public severe episodes are rare.
Loud Sudden Noise, Stress, extreme pain, overwhelming emotional situation, physical exertion.
During a Medical Episode Conditions include:
- Inability to audibly respond to questions
- Disorientation or Confusion (I may not know where I am)
- Lack of Balance
- Shaking of the hands and/or feet
- Extreme fatigue that may appear as paralysis
- Difficulty breathing
- Irregular heartbeat
- Rectal Bleeding
- Uncontrollable diarrhea
Under most circumstances the effects of an episode can wear off between 1 hour to 2-3 days with rest.
1. Activate the Medical Alert on this device or if I am wearing an alert button. This will notify my caregiver of an episode.
2. If you can’t find that… try to call my Wife or Son (Buttons at the Top of this page)
3. PLEASE SPEAK IN A CALM, CLEAR VOICE
4. Please do not yell or physically shake me trying to promote a reaction as this makes the episode worse!
For Episodes of Extreme Fatigue:
(Appears Unresponsive) This Resembles a Stroke… so don’t freak out. Feel free to move me to a quite place until my caregiver can come.
For Noise Reactions:
I Shake Terribly. This is caused from an overload of my nervous system where my body is literally trying to flee/fight and trying to shut down at the same time. Place something under my head and if I am flailing about… lightly restrain me to keep me from hurting myself.
In an episode, I have no ability to defend myself. If I am in an unsafe circumstance please assist in placing me in a protected circumstance until my ability to respond returns or my care giver arrives.
I walk with a cane, walker or wheelchair when needed.
