I don't know the exact number of my CPK only that it has been coming back abnormally high. I forgot to mention that I also have a high CRP level (14.43). I do have a hard time climbing stairs due to the fact I am so out of breath and my hip bursitis doesn't help much. Some days I do have a hard time getting up from a chair or couch depending on my activity level that day. It's funny you mentioned about raising your hands over your head......I JUST noticed this morning that any activity that I have to raise my arms up over my head causes severe shortness of breath and tiredness. It is getting difficult to wash my hair or use my blowdryer.
Thanks for your input I didn't know about UCTD. I will definetly ask my Rheumatologist about that.
