I am 44 I was diagnosed with SCA 3 years ago after several visits to the hospital, several admissions...multiple blood transfusions and a hematologist ...I am now being told that I do not have SCT or SCD or SCA but Hemoglobin C trait and that this causes no problems at all. Funny thing is this I never said anything about SC to the Dr. Who diagnosed me with SCA ....so #1. How could I even be diagnosed if there was no evidence of this in my blood work 2. Why have I always experienced pain in my abdomon, hips, and legs...3. What exactly is hemoglobin C trait ... And if my pain crisis is not attributed to this what else could it possibly be!?!?!?! Severely confused
