Symptoms of multiple myeloma
The most common symptoms of multiple myeloma include bone pain, fatigue, and bleeding.
- Pain is most noticeable in your bones, and you may experience symptoms of bone damage. It is described as bone pain, which is dull and sustained for an extended period in a wide area that is difficult to pinpoint.
- Fatigue is a common symptom in multiple myeloma, as the disease often causes anemia, which makes you feel tired easily. It can also be described as muscle weakness or a sensation of feeling unwell or malaise.
- Blood tests are used to detect multiple myeloma. These tests measure the levels of t cells, red blood cells, platelets, and creatinine in your blood. Abnormal levels of these substances in your blood test can indicate the presence of multiple myeloma. When platelets are low, the most common symptom is bleeding
