My 11yr old daughter

10/31/2008

Question:

my 11yr old daughter has been suffering some very bad leg pains in her left leg. its to the point where sometimes she can hardly walk. she also suffers from sickle cell. can that be a factor in this problem?

Answer:

The pain she is experiencing may be related to sickle cell disease, but without the ability to examine her, it is impossible for me to tell you anything more specific.  Please address your question to either her primary care provider or her sickle cell doctor.
