Not quite sure what to say ,I'm new to this. So I'll try not to waffle. My dad has sickle cell and 2 days ago my GP finally diagnosed me as having Thalassemia. She wants me to continue taking my iron, vitamin D, blood pressure tablets and tablets for my migraine. I'm trying my best to educate myself based on this , my symptoms seem to fall under thalassemia but I've also had a few crisis in the past and explained this to my doctor prior to the diagnosis. I just want to know what to do and how others cope , all of my life I've been treated for anemia and popped paracetamol for pain relief.
