Increase in the levels of creatinine
kinase (CK) is an indication of damage to muscular tissue of any of the different organs of body. It signifies injury
(inflammation of muscle, sometimes heart muscle damage etc). One of the other important cause of its elevation is in individuals taking medications called statins which are used to decrease cholesterol
drugs. Physical examination is mandatory to assess the proper cause and whether to visit Rheumatologist
or not. Let me know if you have have any clarifications.
