Causes Creatinine Kinase Rise Muscle Weakness
Damage to muscle: The correct term is creatine kinase (ck). Creatinine is something else. Useful to know: most "muscle" weakness is actually caused by nerve, not muscle, malfunction. True muscle weakess: myocytes (muscle cells) contain lots of the enzyme ck. Low levels are found in blood normally. Damage to myocyte cell membranes from a variety of causes causes leakage of ck into the blood. Recovery->normalization. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Muscle weakness is either a subjective or objective symptom based on history or formalized testing. As a result, any complaint of weakness needs to be correlated with testing that can bring out that weakness, which sometimes involves putting that muscle in an isolated and 'disadvantaged' scenario to assess adequately. Such weakness can have multiple etiologies from ...Read more

See below: The polio virus attacks the nerves in the spinal cord that supply the muscles. Called motor nerves. Polio does not affect the nerves that deal with sensation. When the nerves die due to the polio virus, the muscles tend to wither and that is what causes the weakness. Post polio syndrome can occur 30-40 years later with new symptoms of weakness and fatigue. It is not a reactivation of the virus. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
24hr urine creatinine 300 over max range, muscle pain, fatigue, & more, fibromyalgia dx, african-american. No diabetes. High ck other possibilities?
Yes?: CPK or ck is elevated in conditions of the muscles ( aldolase, SGOT and ldh too). We use it as screening because it's sensitivity. It may elevate with cholesterol medicines, also with heart attacks and with rhabdomyolysis ( when it is too high in the thousands may cause renal damage). After injury to large muscles ck may get elevated. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Few things: Troponin is a marker of several heart disorder including heart attack. Other cardiac conditions such as inflammation of the heart muscle, inflammation of the sac around the heart (pericardoum) also can cause troponin release in the blood. Troponin is increased in cardiac contusion, defibrillation of the heart and some cardiac procedures. It is positive up to 10-14 days after the injury. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
CPK levels were at 58 (55-170 U/L), what does this mean? Muscle pain and heaviness in lower legs and upper arms.
Could chest pressure and pounding hb be related to chronic left kidney pain? Trace protien in urine elevated creatine levels, low bp.
Not classically ...: While anything is possible, this would be rather atypical of kidney related problems causing the symptoms you've reported. I might say otherwise if you had some form of kidney disease that lead to very high blood pressures as this can lead to the symptoms you mention but low blood pressure - while can lead to a headache - more often makes you feel weak and lightheaded. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
It is a body tissue that has the ability to contract. It shortens and generates force. It relaxes and returns to its original length. Muscles move joints, stabilize the body, move air and food through the organs, act as valves for bladder, bowel and other organs. They control movement of the eyes. They help us express ourselves by changing the shape of our ...Read more
