Avatar m tn ​What exactly are the abnormal lab values that have lead to the diagnosis of MGUS and Proteinuria? Lab indicators of too much protein in blood and urine? If I am understanding correctly, they have no symptoms​​ (other than possible tingling/numbness with MGUS), are not generally serious conditions, and are found quite secondarily of other lab tests.​ ​ When you say, "...have felt like everyone else", do you mean muscle/bone pain​, ​fatigue​, and never feeling well again​?
