What Are Signs of Multiple Myeloma?

Q:
What are signs of multiple myeloma?

A:
Signs of multiple myeloma vary from people to people. In the early stage of multiple myeloma, there may be no signs. Possible signs include:

  • Bone pain in spine or chest.
  • Nausea.
  • Vomiting.
  • Constipation.
  • Increased or decreased urine.
  • Loss of appetite.
  • Confusion.
  • Fatigue.
  • Frequent infections.
  • Weight loss.
  • Weakness or numbness in legs.
  • Excessive thirst.

If you find that signs above frequently occur in your daily life, you had better ask your doctor for advice at once. Scientific research has shown that if multiple myeloma is not treated timely, the patient is likely to pass away in several months. However, patients with myeloma which is not too serious, if being treated, may live ten or more years. Therefore, timely treatment is very important.
