I've been reading a lot about the benefits of medical marijuana with people with hemophilia. Can anyone give me any insight
For the last couple of months, I've experienced periodic extreme fatigue and I get petechiae (small red dotted rash) on my legs and chest. Are these typical symptoms any of you have experienced with your Von Willebrand Disease? What do you do about it?
I am always tired and have petechiae in random places, not to many, they are on my chest and legs. Should I worry?
I am scheduled for diagnostic mammogram. I have factor VIII levels in the low 40% and tend to bruise easily. Worried about the mammogram causing significant bruising so am wondering about the experiences of others.
I’ve had a few and never had a problem
I live in Michigan, and we have Childrens Special Health, that covers hospitalizations, factor, and supplies, with no cap.
I'm looking to moving somewhere possibly warmer in the future, and I'm curious about coverage in other states. I'm a very special, and severe case, and want to be sure I'll get the coverage that would keep me healthy.
If you care to share, that would be amazing.
I don't have hep-c but know of some people that does or did. They now have treatment for it.
Are there any older guys with haemophilia that are experiencing chronic pain in both elbows. Right hand small finger has pins and needles feeling?
I have pins and needles in my small finger as well as the next. Xrays shows that I have a nerve caught in the elbow joint. Got used to it after an few years. Now I have Carpal tunnel syndrome as well.
I bruise extremely easy with my May-Hegglin. Many times I have no clue what even caused the bruise. I like to wear skirts, dresses and shorts, but lately I dread wearing them because of my bruises and the reaction I get from others. I know I shouldn't care, but I don't want people to think I am abused either.
Be honest with people about your condition and how it causes bruising, often without you knowing the cause.
Need benign tumor reduction.
Had Epilepsy when i was younger had a tumour removed... Ten years later had another growth and had 'gamma knife surgery'. That resolved the problem for me...
I have von Willebrands disease. I really don’t know much about it. I was told its a relatively minor case but that’sall i know. I don’t know what to expect with this disease and have a lot of body pain and headaches. I’m not sure if any of this is from vwd or if it’smy other conditions.
I have VWD and have always been told it’s a Factor VIII deficiency.
