Fearing multiple myeloma :/
« on: June 01, 2014, 12:58:54 PM »
I'm scared I have multiple myeloma now because I have had mild back pain and my calcium level was a 10.4 when I went to the ER a few months ago with a panic attack about brain tumors. They said everything else on the bloodwork looked perfect.

Guaranteed if they did blood work in the hospital, the did a CBC (complete blood count, measuring white blood cells, red blood cells, platelets, ect) - if you had multiple myeloma, your blood work would be off on a CBC. GUARANTEED. ...You're fine.

Mine was also in the 10's 7months ago and I did a blood test recently and a sediment test and it was back in the 9's. I did drink alot of baking soda around the first time

Also your kidney proteins would be off

Maybe medication caused it? Its more likely to be a parathyroid issue assuming you had anything to worry about but its most likely a fluke.

Get tested for MGUS if you're really worried, but you're fine op :)
