Multiple Myeloma Symptoms - Often, early stage multiple myeloma may be asymptomatic (displays no symptoms). As the disease progresses, possible symptoms of multiple myeloma may include the following: anemia (low red blood count), bone pain (often in the back or ribs), unexplained bone fractures, fatigue, fever, shortness of breath, weight loss, easy bruising or bleeding (low platelet count), recurrent infections, kidney problems, hypercalcemia (too much calcium in the blood), leukopenia (low white blood cell count), and weakened and/or collapsing bone structures that produce pain, tingling or numbness. People who have a condition known as MGUS (monoclonal gammopathy of unknown significance), a form of plasma disease, may have an increased risk of developing multiple myeloma.
