I have #sickle cell trait as I was told as a child. I have always been in pain and use to faint a lot but lately, I have been really sick with a cold that won't go away chest pain and now my legs and feet are swollen. I don't have insurance. I have not gone to the Dr is there anyone that can help. Can the trait turn in to a full-blown sickle cell? Sickle cell trait means only one of your two genes is with error. A sickle cell trait almost never develops symptoms. It must be something else, e.g. chronic infection? #nowtrending
