Are leg cramps a symptom of multiple myeloma?
Leg cramps aren’t directly associated as a classic symptom of multiple myeloma. Multiple myeloma primarily affects the bone marrow, leading to symptoms like bone pain, fractures and fatigue. While some patients may experience leg cramps, it’s a symptom more often linked to medication side effects, electrolyte imbalances or other underlying conditions. It’s important to differentiate between general leg cramps and bone pain or weakness, which can be associated with myeloma.
