I wouldnt worry, I think working out, viruses, bruises, shots, even moderate exercise like walking can effect the test. I've heard of some people having CK levels too low where thier doctors told them to get out of the house and get active. So I think not to worry.

BUT....I just felt like 122 was a little too high, and it should be more around the seventy-ish level, as you said yours was, especially since I am a female. The guy at the ER said that it was fine, but at the time I was in there for heart palpitations, and he was speaking in relation to heart issues, not muscle issues. I haven't been back to my neuro yet, but need to go and see if he'll give me any ressurance about this. So far, from what I've read, the CK levels should be in the thousands with diseases such as als, but I'm not sure.
I have heard that they do vary a lot as far as the activity you've been engaged in, etc. Val

I'm curious as to what your CK level was? I found out a few days ago that there is a relationship between an elevated CK level and hypothyroidism which I just started to take medication for (Synthroid). And I have had a tremendous amount of weakness and fatigue that also goes hand in hand with hypothyroidism.
I'm not quite sure I understand your message though - high CK no weakness, no relationship between the 2 events. Do you mean just a high CK level from the BFS?
Thanks and God Bless,

Looks like you have had some interesting posts back to you original. I just wanted to add a comment made my neuro when I saw him the other day.
My CK was 285 and I was worried that it was too high. When I mentioned it to him he said
"Personally I think that the international scale for CK is unrealistically low. Over the years I have formed the view that anything under 500 is normal and if you add in things like injury and excercise then that figure can go up and still be normal".
This reassured me at the time.
