Bruising

Bruising

While still in the MGUS stage ( before diagnosis) has anyone had unexplained bruising? Not anemic or on blood thinners.

I get bruising also but found that the slightest bump against a wall or rubbing against something that I would not think causes bruising actually does so I have become watchful of everything I come in contact with and try not to rub against anything. There are many creams out there that will help also once you get a bruise. Best of luck to you!

From my experiences waiting can turn into multiple myeloma. It would be best to get a bone biopsy early to see if there is any cancerous cell in the bone marrow. Because I experience the watch and waiting process and mines turn into multiple myeloma. The earlier you catch it the last plasma cells will have develop well cancer herself

If you want serious answers to your questions about MGUS, see a MM Specialist and get a bone marrow biopsy.

I have heard that unexplained/easy bruising could be a symptom of a blood disorder.

Have lots of questions for your doctor. . .

Unfortunately, many doctors have not heard of MGUS. I have seen at least five doctors recently who have not heard of MGUS—one was a dermatologist. . .
