I was informed quite awhile ago that I have sickle cell trait. I was unconcerned because I was told that there are no symptoms. However, I signed up because I read through many posts on issues other with the trait have been experiencing and I seem to fit the bill for many of them such as joint pain, migraines ( which I've never had before ) and sharp chest pains. I also have abdominal pains quite often but I was recently informed that I have muscle tightness. I don't believe it's related to the trait but I know nothing about it so I would like to learn as much as possible. Any information would be well appreciated.
