Reply To: Anti-MAG treatment update

To answer your question, I was diagnosed with MGUS that was confirmed with a bone marrow biopsy, and blood tests that showed igM > 102,400. My neurologist said that was “through the roof” and beyond the maximum reading of the test in that particular lab.

I have not come across information online that states that anti-MAG can lead to stress fractures or other problems in the feet. But your experience sounds very similar to mine. It seems like if muscles in the feet, calfs, etc. atrophy, there will be increasingly more weight on the many bones in your feet and put them under more stress. Just like with our balance problems, as muscles atrophy their are fewer muscles to automatically control our body movements as we move in different positions and walk. Then on top of that the brain’s nerve impulses are no longer conducted at the proper velocity to normally “fire” the muscles so they slowly atrophy.
