I'm thankful to have found this site. I have SCT. I had terrible issues with my legs when I was young only rubbing and heat would help. My mother and sister would be up all night rubbing and using a heating pad on my legs. When I was a toddler the hospital felt the issues with my legs was from SCT. As an adult in my 50's I still have issues occasionally. It's odd but I can't sleep will my legs bare unless I'm really warm. I can feel when a crisis starts to creep up.

Welcome the struggle is real.

Yes this sounds familiar. My daughter who’s 12 has SCT and she is experiencing this now. She had really bad aches in her knees and only ibuprofen and heating pads help at this time. I have SC ss and this disease is brutal at times.
