Myeloproliferative Disease Symptoms

Many times, especially in the early stages, myeloproliferative disease does not have symptoms. When it does have signs, they vary from person to person. If you have symptoms, they may include:

  • Headache
  • Fatigue
  • Shortness of breath
  • Easy bruising or bleeding
  • Petechiae (tiny red spots under the skin)
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Night sweats
  • Fever

These symptoms do not always mean you have MPD. However, it is important to discuss any symptoms with your doctor, since they may signal other health problems.
