Do Any Of You With Vwd Have Extreme Fatigue,joint Pain And Burning?

I can't seem to get enough sleep anymore. Somedays my joints hurt so bad I can hardly move and I am experiencing a terrible burning sensation around different joints when I move them.

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?

How Do I Discourage My 17 Yro. Severe Hemo. A Son, Not To Buy A Motorcycle?

.Hi, My 17 yro. Severe A son, is determined to buy a motorcycle. He has written and explained a 3 page report to me and his dad the reasons why he should be allowed to get a motorcycle. To me, this just sounds like the craziest idea in the world.--No exceptions!---A no brainer. But trying to convince my son is a totally different argument
This would not happen right away, but probably within the next 6 to 8 mos
