Not in early phase: In very early phase you do not usually have noticeable symptoms. When it is progressing- you are going to start noticing more symptoms.

Not initially: Myelofibrosis is a disease of the bone marrow which causes increasing fibrosis (scarring) over time and loss of the marrow to function normally. Thus until the marrow is harmed to the degree where you develop anemia or low platelets or low white blood cells you will normally not experience any symptoms.
