Myeloma: What People Don't See (Infographic)

Updated on November 07, 2019

Below the surface, living with myeloma can mean days spent in bed, missed appointments, and alternate days when we seem "fine." There's so much more to myeloma than meets the eye. We know that myeloma comes with hundreds of possible combinations of symptoms, many of which appear invisible to outsiders. Most people don't see the many symptoms we experience.

On MyMyelomaTeam, the social network and online support group for people living with myeloma, thousands of members discuss the chronic nature of the disease and its hidden symptoms. Throughout the year we will share themes we see come up time and time again on MyMyelomaTeam. We chose the image of an iceberg to represent Myeloma symptoms because the life-impacting implications of a myeloma diagnosis aren't obvious on the surface. Please share to spread myeloma awareness!

This list is by no means exhaustive. What symptoms would you add?
