Can multiple myeloma cause extreme fatigue?
Yes, extreme fatigue is a common symptom among multiple myeloma patients. The fatigue may arise from the disease itself, the body’s response to abnormal proteins produced by cancerous cells, anemia often associated with myeloma or as a side effect of treatments. Fatigue can significantly impact quality of life. Regular checkups, managing anemia and supportive therapies can help address and mitigate fatigue.
