I had high Liver enzymes on a blood test about 2 months ago.  Probably due to meds (Biaxin, Spectracef, plaquenil, celebrex, neurontin, crestor, plavix). I upped the amount of Milk Thistle and the Liver enzymes came down but still higher than normal. However the latest test showed my Creatine Kinase was 100 points above normal.  Anyone have high Creatine Kinase that was caused or due to Lyme?

Hi saxmar,

Im an undiagnosed Lymie, have been for the last 5yrs. I'm in the process of trying to get the docs to take me seriously. For full story, take a look at my post; Lyme or not lyme, that is the question - www.healingwell.com/community/default.aspx?f=30&m=2111117
I'm not currently been treated. I had some routine bloods taken about 3 months ago, my CK reading was 700+ it was re-tested 2 weeks later 370+ and then again in april, still high at 370+
I've also been wondering if this is a cause of Lyme?

Creatine Kinase is produced by your muscles, its common for an athlete or body builder to have massive amounts of CK, its a protein released by damaged muscles. There are 3 main sources, Brain, heart and skeletal muscle. The fact that mine is high, leads me to believe that the Lyme is attacking my muscles, more so my heart(getting mega pulpitations)and is producing my CK reading. Trying to convince my docs of this, but its falling on deaf ears.

Can't be sure, but I have many coincidences, and evidence and symptoms that is seriously pointing to Lyme.

Don't forget to read my other post.

Hope that's helped.

Mrseve,
I just wanted to let you know that all I did was put in a hyperlink to your first post, so that others can find it easier.

I break up my post because my eyes have been effected by TBI's as well, which makes long paragraphs very hard to read.

Oops! blush So sorry! I should have explained that this is a post from 2009 and I haven't seen Saxmar in a long time. Hopefully someone with some knowledge about this will be along shortly!


Hi Sallyup!!
Welcome to our forum!! Do you or someone you know have or have had any tick-borne infections? How long ago were you infected? Maybe you could tell us a little bit about yourself?

I'm sure you will find us to be a caring, helpful and understanding group!
