I was diagnoised with the Sickle Cell Trait about a month after I was born. I am 22 and will be 23 in October. I don't know too much about the trait except that Anemia is much worse. I have pains a lot (everyday). I have had Migraines since I could remember but the other pains are just random and out of the blue. I could be doing anything or nothing and suddenly a pain will come and then leave. I have heard that the trait can sometimes develop into the full Anemia. Could these pains be a sign that mine is?
