Does anyone else have side effects from Amicar?

I have been on Amicar most of my life and dealt with the side effects, but they seem to be affecting me more lately. I've had nausea and vomiting, and i get really dizzy and ligt headed to the point of fainting. The worst though is along with that, I get super overheated. Does anyone else have these side effects? It's gotten so bad I have even considered trying to switch to Lysteda in hopes it won't have the same effects. Anyone have experiences with switching?

Anyone else have a qualitative platelet disorder and factor 1 hemophilia?

My son was diagnosed at age 6 with a qualitative platelet disorder. His platelets are missing the mechanism that causes them to stack. I recently decided his medical records and noticed that when they were doing his blood work for the diagnosis his fibrinogen level was too low also but they never told me that. Could this mean that he is also a factor 1 hemophiliac... or am I over reacting?

Top Hematologist in NYC

I have von Willebrand’s Disease type 2b. Since I had a partial hysterectomy my platelets have been extremely low (as low as 23000). I need a second opinion on why my platelets will not increase. Can anyone recommend a very very good hematology in NYC.

Are there any severe hemophilia A women out there?

My six-year-old daughter has severe hemophilia A, which we all know is extremely rare. So I’m looking to connect with women who are in the same position. As my daughter gets older, she’s starting to ask more questions about her condition and I would love to be a bit more prepared to answer her questions, and share experience from those with first hand experience managing hemophilia as a woman.
