... Hi, I just popped in looking for info on ck-total levels. I just had the blood test done this week, and have never had it done before. I don't know if my doctor checked the wrong box on the blood test order, or decided it was a good idea. My ck-total was 169, and the lab that did my tests shows "normal" from 55-170. Being so close to the high end, I decided to check it... (6 replies)

... Do request it, Judge. Homocysteine is a protein that is particulary inflammatory to the artery wall. Some people make too much of it. Controlling a high homocysteine is sometimes just a matter of taking large amounts of cheap folic acid. CK results are strictly for judging the effects of statins on your muscles. CRP levels are usually lowered by stain therapy so no,... (1 replies)

... Thanks! Pain (burning pain) is under my rib cage, just about all the way across, possibly a little more on the right side. Last year I had gal-bladder removed after Heida scan showed it at 8%. That helped with the bloated feeling I was having. However, abdominal pain still remains. Also, I have an EGD done every two years and no sign of an ulcer for the past 10 years. I... (6 replies)
... Under the left side ribecage edge: possible pancreatitis; right side: gall-bladder; central or either-side: ulcer! I'd have a test done for antibodies to H.pylorii if you have not already to rule out small ulceration. Usually night-time dosing is not as necessary as once thought. It was originally recommended because most of the manufacture of LDL in the liver occurs while... (6 replies)
... My husband's doctor is concerned about his CPK level (334). You did not mention your dosage. He developed pain on 10mg over eight years and was almost physically floored when it was increased to 20mg. His CPK level was 208, but rose to the current level while off Lipitor. His pain has diminished considerably, but his muscles continue to be inflamed. I do hope you can tolerate... (6 replies)

... I began taking lipitor in early May 2005. When I went to my cardiologist in early July 2005, he told me that my cholesterol was 160, and to come back in three months. I asked him to fax the blood results to me internist. That same day, the internist called to tell me the muscle enzyme level was 358. I then called the cardiologist to ask him why he did not inform me of the... (6 replies)
... Well they couldn't have been reporting the Baycol problems, and look how long it took for that report to go public. People had to die before they recalled that junk, and as I understand it, more died then was actually reported. Like U said, unless it is really serious in THEIR minds, it gets tossed aside as just a lil complaint, or they pass the muscle problems off as... (95 replies)
