Hi @wellness3070,

Unfortunately, research shows that muscle weakness can be one of the side effects; however, here’s some more information form Mayo Clinic, about treatment of anemia in myelofibrosisi: http://mayocl.in/2iPMnSZ

Hi, Kanaaz, Thank you for this. That side effect – muscle weakness – had slipped past my radar. I have sudden muscle weaknesses in my arms and legs. I also have spinal stenosis which could also cause that (and may itself also be a side-effect, of course – fibrin in the spinal column). The problem for me is that I am a violinist. I can still teach but I was doing popular recitals. Now I dare not chance this in case I drop my bow. This has almost happened even when teaching!
