Patient : Hi,
my daughter who is 12 yrs old often complains that her hands and feet pain. it has happened since she was 5, that time it wasn't that bad but now it has become frequent. she tells me it is an uncomfortable pain which she can't explain. Is this associated with sickle cell because she is a partial carrier, just like her grandfather on the father's side, but in my family, nobody has it and among the three kids she is the only one who suffers. Please help me with more info regarding this.
thank you, Mary
