The Symptoms of Paget’s 

Many people who have Paget’s disease do not have symptoms and never develop complications. In many cases, individuals are unaware that they have the condition. It may be discovered by chance on x-ray or if a blood test is performed for another reason.

Of those who present with symptoms, pain is the most common. Pain may arise from the affected bone itself, or from the altered biomechanics of limb deformity; for example, a bowed leg alters the way you walk and puts stress on the joints and soft tissues.

The blood flow to active areas of Paget’s disease increases and this can lead to a feeling of warmth over the affected bone. The affected bone may become enlarged and misshapen.

In many cases there may be no symptoms and individuals are unaware that they have Paget’s disease.
