Hello from JA

 

Multiple myeloma is a bone cancer and does not have a acute onset like this in a well individual.

 

This is most likely flu and the concern is secondary pneumonia.Take this person to emergency.

 

In rare instances a muscle inflammatory disease can present like this. This would be much less likely.

 

Please let me know if you have further questions.

Use reply as needed.

Please do not forget a positive rating.
