Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see your doctor. Your CK level is just above normal and not a cause for concern. Exercise my help loosen the muscles. Start the exercise as tolerated and gradually increase the intensity. Wish you good health!

Be seen: The medical term for this would be called a left sided hemiparesis. I would certainly be seen for this to rule out serious conditions such as a strike or compression of the spinal cord in your cervical spine.
