This is not a full list of possible PV symptoms. Because each person with PV is unique, be sure to talk with your care management team about all of the symptoms that you experience—even if you don’t think they are all related to your condition.

Remember, it’s important to pay close attention to your symptoms—new or changing symptoms could be a sign that your PV is progressing.

Take notice and

Take action


It’s vital to discuss new or changing PV symptoms.

PV is a progressive disease, which means it could get worse over time.

You track and discuss blood counts with your Healthcare Professional, but it’s just as vital to discuss changing symptoms as well, and how they may be affecting your life.

Symptoms can change so slowly over time, you may not even notice them. Changes in the frequency or severity of your PV symptoms can be a sign of disease progression.
