Pain and Hemophilia

Posted on May 10, 2018

Pain is one of the most commonly overlooked symptoms of hemophilia. Joint pain due to bleeds can be difficult to manage and often slips under hematologists' radar.

On MyHemophiliaTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with hemophilia and other bleeding disorders, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Pain is one of the top 10 topics most discussed.

Here are some conversations about pain:

Can you relate?
