Always run down with MGUS
Not really sure if its related, but I get super wiped out after a couple hours of chores, or just shopping, my entire body aches badly. I have so much drive, and love getting everything done, love cleaning, cooking, gardening, and simply enjoying everything in order and organized. Seems lately, more so than the last 2 years since I was diagnosed with MGUS, once I get tired doing whatever, I'll come down with cold sores by next day, usually in my nose, sometimes on my lips. I now have meds for it. Then I'm wiped out for a few days. I dont let it stop me, but I'll admit I'm uncomfortable doing my usual. Drs continue to monitor my labs, and nothing really has progressed. I'm not anemic, and most bloodwork is within normal range. My IGM'S are very low, said to be crowded out by the abnormal cells. The IGM'S are the main white blood cells to fight infection, so I'm at risk, but I never get sick, or run fever, thank God. Just ALWAYS run down. I'm disappointed, and I always feel like even a trip to see my new baby grandson about an hour and 20 minutes drive, will leave me very tired, and run down next day. I actually plan to keep my outings short. I had a bone marrow biopsy done last june…cells are 4% IGG KAPPA…no treatment at this level. Does anyone here experience anything similar to me, with MGUS, and if so, does anything help? I think I'm starting to feel bit disheartened because I'm so active and enjoy doing alot, but my body quits, how sad.
