11 Most Common MDS Symptoms And The Cure To Bring MDS In Remission
Myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) is a disease in which the bone marrow makes abnormal blood cells that are not able to function properly. It often progresses to acute myeloid leukemia (AML), which is a type of blood cancer that affects your bone marrow, causing it to produce too many immature white blood cells and not enough healthy red or white blood cells. AML can also affect other organs in your body such as the liver and spleen.
Fatigue is a common symptom of MDS. The fatigue can be caused by anemia or infection, lack of sleep, stress or depression.
If you have just started to experience fatigue, it may be normal and related to the fact that you are working more than usual at this time in your life. But if it continues for more than 6 weeks, then you should go see your doctor as soon as possible because it could be a sign of something more serious such as MDS!
Anemia is a condition where there is a deficiency of red blood cells in the body. It’s caused by a lack of iron in the body, which can be caused by poor diet, bleeding, and other conditions. Iron deficiency is the most common cause of anemia.
- Infections are a common and often serious problem for people with MDS.
- Infections can occur when the body’s immune system cannot fight off germs that cause infections, such as bacteria or viruses.
- Your doctor may prescribe antibiotics to treat bacterial infections and antiviral drugs to treat viral infections. You may also need other medicines that help your body fight infection, such as prednisone (a steroid) or intravenous immunoglobulin therapy.
- The best way to prevent infection is by getting vaccinated against influenza (flu), pneumococcal pneumonia and hepatitis A and B viruses every year following your diagnosis of MDS until death or transplantation takes place if possible; otherwise, at least once every 5 years thereafter until death occurs if it does not occur during the first 5 years after diagnosis
Bruising and bleeding
If you have MDS, you may experience bruising and bleeding. This can happen for a number of reasons. For example, because your body does not produce enough blood cells to clot properly, the result is easy bruising or bleeding from even minor cuts or injuries. It can also be due to having low platelets in your blood (also known as thrombocytopenia).
If you notice any signs of bruising or bleeding—even if it is only slight—you should talk with your doctor about seeing a specialist who specializes in diagnosing and treating MDS as soon as possible.
Bleeding can also occur during surgery; therefore it is important that this problem be brought up at every routine checkup with your doctor so that they can give you proper treatment before surgery takes place.
Shortness of breath
Shortness of breath is a common symptom of MDS. This occurs when fluid builds up in the lungs, which causes a feeling of tightness. The feeling can be severe, causing you to gasp for air and feel like you are unable to breathe. Shortness of breath can be caused by congestive heart failure or fluid buildup in your chest cavity (pleural effusion), as well as by anemia and low platelet count (thrombocytopenia).
The good news is that shortness of breath can be treated with oxygen therapy and other medications such as bronchodilators or inhaled steroids. In addition, people with MDS should avoid strenuous activity that increases breathing demands since this will make shortness of breath worse.
Swelling of the legs (edema)
Swelling of the legs (edema) is a common symptom of MDS. Swelling of the body’s tissues, which can happen in arms, legs and abdomen may be caused by a variety of conditions including heart, liver and kidney diseases. Edema may also occur as a result of diabetes or high blood pressure.
The swelling associated with MDS typically occurs on one side of your body at a time. The fluid build-up will normally go away after a few days but it may come back again when you’re inactive for an extended period of time or when you have been standing for too long – such as after surgery or if you have been sitting in an airplane seat for several hours without moving around much at all
Fractures and bone pain
Bone pain is a common symptom of MDS. It’s usually caused by bone marrow infiltration, which means that the blood cells are not being produced correctly in the bone marrow.
It’s important to know that even if you have bone pain, there may be other causes for it. For example, if you’ve recently had an injury or broken a bone or joint, it can cause discomfort and make you feel sore or stiff in your joints. So if you have been active recently and experiencing this type of pain or discomfort, it would be best to see your doctor first before trying any treatment options on your own.
High blood pressure (hypertension)
High blood pressure (hypertension) is a common symptom of MDS. It can also be caused by many factors, including MDS. High blood pressure is associated with a higher risk of heart disease, stroke, kidney failure and other health problems.
Persistent fever and night sweats
Persistent fever and night sweats are common symptoms of MDS. Fever can be caused by infection, cancer or other conditions. Night sweats are usually caused by anemia, hyperthyroidism or anxiety.
Night sweats are a common symptom of MDS. Night sweats can be caused by other diseases, including breast cancer and Parkinson’s disease.
During the night, your body needs to cool itself down so that it doesn’t overheat and become dehydrated. Sweat glands located in your skin secrete a small amount of moisture onto the surface of your skin when it’s hot or humid outside. As sweat evaporates from the skin, heat is exchanged for coldness (this process is known as evaporative cooling). You can help your body stay cool at night by wearing light-weight clothing and keeping a fan on in the room where you sleep.
Decreased appetite/weight loss
- What is the cause of decreased appetite?
The most common cause of decreased appetite is a lack of taste. If you have MDS, you may not be able to taste your food like you used to. Your tastebuds are too damaged from the disease and medications that you take for it. This can lead to weight loss because as we age our bodies get less efficient at processing energy from food; this means we need fewer calories than before.
- What are some common symptoms of decreased appetite?
In addition to trouble tasting things, some other symptoms include:
- Feeling full easily despite not eating much food at one time (i.e., feeling full after eating half a sandwich)
- Feeling nauseous when eating certain foods or smelling them cooking (i.e., eggs)
- Having no desire whatsoever for any kind of food
