Multiple myeloma symptoms vary according to person. The signs cannot be noticeable at first. Yet most patients will experience at least one of the different types of symptoms as the disease progresses.
What are the symptoms of multiple myeloma?
The multiple myeloma symptoms are generally referred to by the acronym CRAB:

High levels of calcium in the blood are due to the calcium leakage from the affected bones. This can cause:

- Upset stomach
Additional symptoms of multiple myeloma may include:
- Mental fogginess or confusion
- Frequent infections
- Unintentional weight loss
- Problems with urination
- Weakness or numbness, especially in the legs
