I'm 20 years old. I have been diagnosed to be a carrier of sickle cell or sickle cell trait when I was a child, I don't know if there is a difference but they said it like that (carrier).
But I believe I have been experiencing some of the symptoms of sickle cell disease. I have Muscle pain, Bone pain, Chest pain, Shortness of breathing, sometimes Joint pain, Legs and Arms pain; some days I can barely get off the bed, and headaches are almost daily, some days a headache start when I wake up in the morning and stay until I sleep in the night (the whole day).
Could they misdiagnose me? Should I take a test again to make sure? If not, what is the cause of these problems?
