Brief Answer:
The treatment according to the cause

Detailed Answer:
Hello ! Thank you for posting your question here.
CK-Creatine Kinase is a enzyme that when it's high indicate one of these problems : heart problem ( myocardial muscle damage ) , your muscles ( skeletal muscles or damage of brain.
I would write the normal range 38-174 ( I don't know your Ck-level), in consideration should be taken other test results and you symptoms of you have .
The treatment should be according to the main cause, here are some possibilities, you can think about:
-myocardial infarction ( Do you have any chest pain or orher symptoms that can indicate heart problems?,in this case you need to do another test -Troponine levels .
-kidney problems .
-muscles breakdown - ( Do you take any medication that may affect you skeletal muscles ?,statins , fibrates..ect),heavy physical activity, low thyroid levels ( hypothyroidism ),inflammatory or infection myopathies ,high fever ,muscles trauma.
You should talk about all this with your treating doctor, to do some examinations and to confirm the diagnosis and according to the cause start the treatment.
Hope these are helpful.
Take Care !

Prior to that Ive experienced that chest pain twice when lying on bed.. at first, I thought it was just because am having an acid reflux. But now, am starting to feel that this is not just that. Please help.

Hi, I have been having problems with constipation, hair thinning, bloating, and white spots in my stool for some time now. A blood test showed that my TSH level was elevated at 6.3. Now I have had bouts of diarrhea, and constipation again. There are always white spots in my stool. I am also having break outs of acne on my face...I am a 19 year old female. I am also burping constantly and having pain in my chest and a burning sensation in my chest. Also, underneath my left rib I have had a throbbing kind of pain. I had two cases of what we thought to be food poisoning this past summer where I was puking uncontrollably for a day.
