I am 32 female, and I have just been diagnosed with multiple myeloma

I do not have any of the "causes" and it is all very shocking still.  I presented with nerve problems, but not bone pains.  I had night sweats and a very elevated protein level. My biggest issue seems to be very low hemoglobin causing fainting spells.  Bone marrow biopsy was positive.  I am looking for any other young people that have this diseases.  Most of the infor on the nternet is grave and pretty scary.  I am very young to have this I am told, and that it is also quite rare.  I have started valcade and dex and will be having a stem cell transplant asap.  My doctors are treating it very agressively because of my age.
