I found this site searching to see if there is any correlation between horrible menstrual cycles, fainting spells or migraines and sickle cell trait. I feel like I take my daughter to the Dr all the time with different problems and ask them if there is anything linking her medical issues to the trait and I am looked at like I have two heads. I asked for a referral at her last appointment to a hematologist and was met with even MORE resistance and of course, was not given a referral. All her doctors say trait carriers are at no risk for any other health complications so I find it funny that I find so many things online to the contrary. Can anyone shed some light on this?
