I am at the beginning diagnosis of Myleoma. Nothing on PET scan waiting for and MRI. I had a severe reaction to the COVID vaccine in 2020. I developed muscle tenderness after. I am on XOLAIR 300mg to manage the chronic symptoms since as well as claritin and pepcid 40mg.

Eat well means fruits, carbohydrates. But most of MM patients are diabetic also. Sugar level may go to alarming levels because of chemo and other medicines which are steroids viz. Dexa. Foods, fruits high in pottasium may be harmful to those who have kidney problems. So selecting low pottasium fruits also helps.
