I agree with what you have both said about the relative unimportance of MS in a medical emergency situation, but have one comment - that of medication.
A while ago now I rushed into A&E with agonising abdominal pain and fever: I was seriously ill. It was touch and go, and I received emergency surgery which saved my life … just in time! Now, MS was irrelevant to my condition, however, I am on medication, and the doctors and anaesthetist needed the details of that, which fortunately I was able to give shortly before I became delirious and had to be knocked out with morphine. I don’t think I’m on anything that interfered, but I’m very happy that the docs had the information. (I’d gone there alone, so no-one else to tell them).
I now carry a card with my drug details, and more, in my wallet - which is always with me when I’m out and about, and keep details in the house which will be found in case of any future emergency (see below). The docs need all the facts if they are to do the best they can.
I use the Lions Club - ‘Message in a Bottle’ scheme. I am not a member of this club, you don’t have to be, but I think it makes good sense. I have a sticker on the door and another on the fridge. The emergency services know about this scheme, and seeing a sticker will look in the fridge where said ‘Message in (plastic) Bottle’ is stored. They would then know exactly what medication I was on (I may be alone again).
