    Hi, I new to this forum and wondering if anyone can help me?

    My lovely Mum was sadly diagnosed with Myeloma in 2012 and is now on her 3rd stint of medication, since 2013 she now has ARMD (the wet version) in both her eyes and I am just wondering if there maybe a connection with her Myeloma?

    Our consultants are outstanding and we have excellent care, I have mentioned this to them but was wondering if anyone else has experienced this whilst having Myeloma?

    Thank you for posting on the Myeloma UK discussion forum.  My name is Debbie and I am one of the Myeloma Information Specialists here at Myeloma UK.

    As far as we are aware there is no connection between myeloma and age related macular degeneration (ARMD).  This is not to say that other patients might not have experience of both, as both are more prevalent the older we get, and therefore it is possible that other patients with myeloma may also develop ARMD, albeit independent of their myeloma diagnosis.

    I hope this has helped but please call us on the Infoline if you would like to talk this through.  The number is 0800 980 3332.

    With best wishes

    Debbie
