Hi. I have takayasu's arteritis and have narrowing of my left sub-clavian artery which means that I have no pulse in my left wrist and very low blood pressure in that arm. I met an A&E nurse the other day who suggested I carry something with me to warn people of this. It had occured to me that if i was ever in a situation when I couldn't explain such as an accident that this would be very confusing and could result in incorrect treatment. Do other people carry cards, wear jewellery etc that explains nature of condition as well as medication? Does anyone have any advice about what to go for? Thanks. Jane
