I would like to alert all armsleeve/glove/gauntlet and possibly lower limb compression garment wearers to something that happenened to me last night in Chambery airport in France. I stepped though the body scan machine only to be asked to remove my armsleeve, which was only visible from wrist to fingers as I had a fleece on. I explained that I have 'lymphodeme' and removed the fleece. I don't think that the security guard understood as they proceeded to scan my arm and armsleeve using what I think was a metal detector. I thought at first it had burned me as the two areas they scanned felt hot, but there were no visible marks. My arm felt tingly for some time afterwards. I am going to make a complaint to the French Airports Authority about it. Unfortunately I was not carrying my Lymphalert card, but I am not sure that it would have made any difference. I appreciate the need for security but this treatment seemed over the top.
