ok what is CRAB? My doctor keeps mentioning CRAB and I'm feeling overwhelmed. Can you please explain what CRAB means slowly?

      CRAB is an acronym used commonly to describe the common clinical features of multiple myeloma: Calcium elevation, Renal insufficiency, Anemia, and Bone lesions. Understanding these symptoms can help you and your doctor monitor your condition and determine the best treatment plan. If you have any further questions or concerns, feel free to ask.

      CRAB is a way doctors talk about the main symptoms of multiple myeloma. It's like a checklist they use to see how the disease is affecting you: C for Calcium: It's about your blood calcium levels. When they're high, it can mean your bones are getting weak from the myeloma. R for Renal: This one's about your kidneys. Myeloma can mess with them and make them not work as well. A for Anemia: That's when you don't have enough red blood cells. It can make you feel tired and weak. B for Bones: Myeloma can mess up your bones, making them weak and causing pain. Hope that clears things up a bit. Take care. 🧡
