      I hear you, as someone who is sick all the time (even way before I got my dx, just cause I have a bad immune system) I really recommend taking a deep deep breath, try to relax and clear your head, then gather some courage, and go get tested. It will for sure help with the current state of uncertainty...

      Aww so sorry dear, but not getting tested would rather put you into more anxiety and depression. Besides, if it turns out that you have MM, getting an early diagnosis means you can start treatment early and that's a huge advantage. Plus, there are a lot of really effective treatments available for MM these days (and for pain in general), so talking to your doc can definitely be worthwhile! we're here for you and hoping for the best outcome!

      I am sorry you are in pain and sick. Also, I can understand you're being scared, and unsure if this will allay any of your fear, but Myeloma is infrequently genetic. For peace of mind, perhaps getting tested would be best?

      As someone who has experienced similar fears, I can empathize with your concerns. However, it's important to note that the genetic mutations typically linked to myeloma are usually acquired rather than inherited. While your risk may be slightly elevated given your sister's diagnosis, it's essential to stay informed and proactive. If you're feeling anxious, I would encourage you to reach out to your physician for guidance and consider undergoing testing for peace of mind. Stay strong!
