Understanding Peripheral Neuropathy in Myeloma

The Understanding Peripheral Neuropathy in Myeloma booklet is designed to help both myeloma patients who already have peripheral neuropathy (PN) and to help patients avoid developing this problem. We hope that the booklet is also a resource for caregivers and loved ones, who should recognize symptoms of PN and can help communicate them to the healthcare team treating the patient's myeloma. 

Peripheral neuropathy (PN) is a complication of myeloma involving damage to the nerves of the peripheral nervous system that can be caused both by myeloma and by treatments for myeloma.
