Multiple myeloma – blood cancer formed in bone marrow

submitted by: mdanderson

Multiple myeloma is a cancer caused by malignant plasma cells. Plasma cells help the human body fight infection, but when they multiply out of control, the myeloma cells overpower the bone’s healthy cells causing harmful side effects; such as bone fractures and infections. Sheeba Thomas, M.D., assistant professor in Lymphoma/Myeloma at MD Anderson Cancer Center, discusses the basics, risk factors, diagnosis and treatment options for this rare cancer.

Sleepiness, tiredness and fatigue are complaints which must be thoroughly analyzed to eliminate blur and ambiguity. Physiological sleepiness (“sleep pressure”) increases while being awake and additionally underlies the circadian rhythm with a lower threshold to fall asleep during night time. Excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS) is considered normal only after sleep deprivation. Clinically, EDS manifests by frequents daytime napping and/or reduced alertness with automatic behavior or -...
