I have been told that taking omega oil supplements could be very dangerous as I have Vonwillebrands. Has anyone else heard or been told this?

Hi, David. I have been at Cardeza Foundation at Thomas Jefferson for decades. Chris Ramsey

I noticed some petechiae spots on my abdomen and legs in May. The ones on my abdomen started to spread and get lighter in color in the center. One doctor said that I had ringworm.

I am curious, my husband has O negative blood and his friend also has negative blood. These are the only 2 hemophiliacs I know. I was wondering if there is a correlation with negative blood and hemophilia? Also, my husband has a MTHFR mutation, which makes his body less able to detox, among other things.

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?
NO ILL EFFECTS!!!
I regularly get them on my left side and have had it cauterized three times. I use a Tampon to help for a clot and stop it but this was a five tampon event in my nose over just two hrs. I also just let it run in the sink for awhile out of frustration! Should I use the DDAVP NOSE spray in this case??
Is that over the counter ?
If so, would love to hear your story and your healing time.
I have used large costly mobile vein viewer devices in hospital.
I have found other more affordable hand held devices on the web.
Please share any experiences you may have had with your recommendations.
If possible also supply manufactures name and model number of the device.
Any feedback? My veins are mostly collapsed.
