What Are The Symptoms Besides Back Pain?

What Are The Symptoms Besides Back Pain?

I am waiting to see a specialist. I need to know what symptoms are common with MM besides the back pain and fatigue?

I was diagnosed with Myeloma in Dec 2015. I didn’t have much pain at that time, during the first years my bones started aching. My doctor gives me an infusion once a month called Aredia and it seems to help. Also I am on a low dose of Hydrocortisone also for pain.

Only symptom I had was losing weight rapidly.

That's a really good question to raise with your dentist. He should definitely know about your ONJ risk and about the high biphosphate dosing. I would think it would be highly recommended. I do get antibiotics before cleaning, but its because I have joint replacements. Some do not give it-but I always ask for it.

I have a lot of bone pain all over my body along with back pain. My pain management doctor gives me Hydrocortisone for the pain.
