How does Paget's disease affect the body?

Even though you may not feel any symptoms, Paget's disease can affect your body in a variety of ways. It can make your bones grow faster, larger, and weaker. It can damage the joints and nerves near the bones that are affected. Paget's disease does not necessarily affect every bone in your body - the skull, pelvis, and arm and leg bones are among those that are frequently affected. The bones that have Paget's disease may fracture easier than normal and you may feel pain in those areas.
