Signs and Symptoms

Some people have no MDS symptoms.Your diagnosis may come as a result of a routine physical exam and subsequent blood test.

Sign and symptoms of MDS are:

  • fatigue
  • shortness of breath during physical activity (caused by a lack of red cells [anemia])

These symptoms are common to other, less serious illnesses. However, if you're troubled by either symptom, see your doctor.
