You never know when you will need it...

by ROAD iD Staff May 21, 2021

I am a cyclist, which is why I initially purchased a Road ID, and I also suffer from severe migraines. Sometimes, when I get a full blown migraine, it can look really bad -- I lose the power of speech, can't feel my face, can't see properly, can't think straight, and don't know my own name.

One day recently, a bad migraineset in and I barely made it to my local pharmacy. Long story short, the individuals at the pharmacy ended up calling a local emergency doctor to confirm my details over the phone – my name, age, medications -- none of which I could relay. In the end, I simply held out my arm and they retrieved all my information from my Road ID. The doctor got my details and knew how to treat me when I came around an hour later. 

Everyone with a medical condition should wear a Road ID. I recommend Road ID to all my students, my training clients, and anyone I deal with who is training or has medical issues. The bottom line is, you never know when you will need it.

Thanks, again!
