Symptoms Of MM
A MyMyelomaTeam Member asked a question 💭

So I went to my new Dr. After reading alot of stuff in this group I was feeling like I knew a little more about wgat I was facing
So I go in I tell him about my pain in my back and my severe fatigue. He says I don't think any of this is from your MM. 🤔. Really so I go from very active all my life to old in 3 months..... I get that I'm getting older and I won't be able to do things like I'm 20. But I don't believe old age hits you like that over night. I tell him I get a good night sleep and… read more

Yes definitely get a second opinion because I had a friend with MM who had a tumour on his spine that fractured his vertebrae before he was diagnosed. The Dr. said oh your tall and old it is nothing to worry about but the Dr. Was wrong. I also know from my own experience with MM that there is bone pain that can show up anywhere in your body,mine is mostly in my upper arms. With MM you will definitely have fatigue so get a better Dr.

I understand your dilemma Colleen! It sounds like the doctor will be a good one so it should be worth the wait!!! You really need to have one who knows and specializes in MM. I’m pulling for you!!!!!

I’m pretty up on my numbers also. I just feel a md should offer better advice than your getting older. . I am glad he is sending you for test because you may or may not find a answer. It’s a far to familiar sign when most of us have felt pain like you describe. I definitely think you need to see someone who is a specialist.
