Question Pain bracelet and seizures

I was wondering if any of you have ever asked your neuro's about using the pain bracelet with your epilepsy. I have a lot of pain in my right arm and wanted to see if this really worked, but am a little afraid since I have seizures.

Hugs
Koko

Hi Koko, are you talking about the copper bracelets or the magnetic ones? I don't personally think either one would cause you any problems, but then again, I'm not a doctor.

On the subject of bracelets, do you wear a medic alert bracelet? Just wondering if I need to get one...

Piano:
I wear one even though I have not had a seizure
in about 1 1/2 yrs. I also happen to be a E.M.T.
and as a EMT I would find it helpful if I knew
what medical condition may have I wouldn't hurt
to get one
Peace

hi Piano

I havn't warn a medic alert bracelet for years hon.. The reason is I am so active I brake them constantly and tend to find myself looking for them more then anything LOL I tried the necklace medic alert and I broke that as well. If your not real active meaning using your hands alot working on big machinery etc hey I would wear one.

Hugs
Koko
