In brief: Not other than flu

Sickle cell trait does not cause usual symptoms associated with sickle cell disease (homozygous sickle cell, hemglobin s-hemoglobin c disease, and sickle cell/beta thalassemia).
However, sickle cell trait patients may experieince bloody urine, and at a high altitude (like in colorado), vaso-occulisve crisis may occur. This may also occur under extreme heat and stress.
