In brief: Only if fracture +
Not everybody who has myeloma will have fracture when diagnosed.
Yes, myeloma will involve the bone and there would be increased risk for fracture- however- just because one has myeloma-it does not mean that it is identical to pain unless you have fracture. And if you do-it depends on your tolerance to pain and how severe the fracture is. Pain is very subjective. Discuss with oncologist.
