I was going to a clinic for years and was told I was anemic. They gave me iron pills. A few years down the road I started having pain in my ribs. Went twice to the hospital and was diagnosed with chest wall pain and given ibuprofen. The pain happened again. I went to Johns Hopkins who diagnosed me with multiple myeloma. They referred me to the cancer unit where a biopsy revealed I was Stage 3. You need to see a hematologist or cancer oncology doctor. I am in my eight year with Multiple Myeloma Bone Cancer doing chemotherapy and Immunotherapy.
