Has anyone been diagnosed with NERVE DAMAGE bc of SCD?

Sickle cells can
block blood flow through blood
vessels, immediately depriving
an organ of blood and oxygen.
In sickle cell anemia, blood is
also chronically low on oxygen.
Chronic deprivation of oxygen-rich blood can damage nerves
and organs in your body,
including your kidneys, liver
and spleen. Organ damage can
be fatal.
