    Symptoms

    In its early stages, polycythemia vera usually doesn't cause any signs or symptoms. However, as the disease progresses, you may experience:

    * Headache
    * Dizziness
    * Itchiness, especially following a warm bath or shower
    * Redness of your skin
    * Shortness of breath
    * Breathing difficulty when you lie down
    * Numbness, tingling, burning or weakness in your hands, feet, arms or legs
    * A feeling of fullness or bloating in your left upper abdomen due to an enlarged spleen
    * Fatigue

    I'm very sorry for your loss.
