    I need to wake up at 5AM everyday and sometimes I don't hear my alarm ringing no matter how loud I put it and it's right next to my ear. I'm sure there are some kind of alarms which you can strap to your foot or arm and they will begin vibrating or I don't know.. something of that sort. I looked on amazon and most vibrating alarms don't have reviews so I don't know which one to buy.

    It doesn't have to vibrate but it has to wake my up. And it needs to be more then a BEEP.

    Any recommendations will be greatly appreciated.

    I bought a boombox that has an alarm feature. It's much louder than clock radios.

    can you describe your expereince with it? how much does it "vibrate"? does it "jump start you" ie- scare the shit out of you so you are wide awake?

    It vibrates a lot until you press 'snooze' or turn off the alarm, I've always woke up on time because of it. It's the size of a CD, you gotta secure it under your pillow otherwise it'll just fall off the bed when it starts vibrating. However it doesn't work for some people who are very deep sleepers, Sonic Alert has a bigger vibrator about the size of a legal pad- that definitely will scare the shit out of you.
