I'm allergic to thunder!

Yes, you read that right. MedicAlert member Jane tells us that having suffered from various allergies there was a period where her reactions were triggered so badly during thunderstorms that an EpiPen delivering a measured dose of medication had to be used to help her.

Having investigations with an immunologist at Addenbrooke’s Hospital where spores from the thunder were collected they did several controlled tests that confirmed that she was most certainly allergic to thunder and the spores that are carried in it.

Jane turned to MedicAlert on the advice from a nurse having suffered a cardiac arrest during major surgery where an opiate was given. Considering other conditions and allergies Jayne thought it was imperative to wear our jewellery and says it's been a real lifesaver.
