What are the effects of statin drugs?

My CK level remains in the 1000 range. My CK MB test result was 27.4. My Cobalamines was 1010 and Vit. D was low. I have been tested for almost everything related to muscle diseases except biopsy has not been done. I have not taken statin drugs for several months. I suffer from perf. neuropathy and lower back stenosis. Could the elevated test results indicate some type underlying cancer or disease? My Neurologist is at a loss and is referring me to a medical school for evaluation. Just wondering?

Hi!
I appreciate your concern for the elevated test results.
Elevated Cobalamines, & Creatine kinase levels and low vit D levels are could be seen in some underlying cancer or chronic diseases.
Kindly consult your physician for proper evaluation and treatment.
