Before you start any new treatment, talk with your healthcare team about the possible side effects. Some common side effects of many multiple myeloma treatments include:
- Fevers or flu-like symptoms
- Changes in appetite
- Gastrointestinal upset, such as nausea, vomiting, constipation, or diarrhea
- Problems sleeping
- Mouth sores
- Pain, numbness, tingling in hands and feet
Keep in mind that everyone reacts differently to treatment and experiences side effects differently. Talk with your doctor about how your treatment might affect you.
