I have had MM for five years with no symptoms other than a bloodclot. Velcade has knocked my protein levels down to normal with 6 treatments.Excruciating neuopathy in legs discontinued treatment. I am taking Lyrica which knocked out the neuropathy completely.

The pain from neuropothy in the feet, ankles and legs is excruciating. It is so bad that I can not be on my feet for more that 2 min at a time. The worse part is, the pain just doesn't go away.
