Acromegaly Symptoms


The symptoms of acromegaly can be nonspecific (such as aching joints, or tiredness), or may develop so slowly over time as to be almost imperceptible (for example, gloves or shoes feeling tight). If you suspect you might have acromegaly, consider this checklist of symptoms and signs and, if several of them seem to apply to you, discuss your thoughts with your doctor.
