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.
