Dear patient,

The levels indicate muscle damage and inflammation, likely on a chronic basis. The first need to be ruled out by your provider is if any of the medications you are taking can give that side effect; if none, then further investigations for myopathy (muscle inflammation) need to be undertaken, which could likely include a small sample (biopsy) of muscle to look under microscope.

Truly yours,
