Does multiple myeloma cause joint pain?
While bone pain is common in multiple myeloma, joint pain (arthralgia) isn’t directly caused by the disease. However, some treatments, especially certain chemotherapeutic agents or corticosteroids, can lead to joint pain as a side effect. Furthermore, secondary conditions like amyloidosis, which can be associated with myeloma, might also cause joint symptoms. Proper evaluation and management are essential to address the root cause of the pain.
