Impact of Pain on Quality of Life for People Living with Hemophilia

Posted on December 16, 2017

While people with hemophilia A are known to suffer from bleeding, numerous other symptoms can also be a burden, including pain. Members of MyHemophiliaTeam who have hemophilia A responded to an online survey to share how other symptoms impact their daily life. Members described pain, in particular, as having a significant impact on quality of life, including disrupting sleep, limiting work, causing social withdrawal, and leading to inactivity.
