H Pylori and Elevated Creatine Kinase
(Orange County, CA )
Initially, I experienced muscle pain, weakness, nausea, fatigue, frequent urination, and dehydration and went to the ER. They ran a blood test and saw elevated creatine kinase levels and were quick to diagnose me with a condition called "rhabdomyolosis" (muscle fiber destruction which leads to a release of creatine kinase in your system and causes symptoms similar to what I had) they deduced that I incurred this from working out too hard since I was a gym rat.
The solution was to be rest and hydration and symptoms were to likely improve within 3 weeks.
Fast forward two months of "watching and waiting" for the symptoms to come down while not working out and hydrating like crazy I decided to get a second opinion. After a variety of tests with perfect results, I was finally diagnosed with h pylori. Which I know can cause a variety of problems beyond the digestive area.
My question is - can h pylori cause muscle inflammation and can muscle inflammation result in a higher creatine kinase level?
Also do my initial symptoms fall within the scope of h pylori? If so it is likely that this bacterial infection is the culprit for all of my resulting symptoms over the last 2 months (which eventually included stomach cramps, diarrhea, and chills.
I am currently on the triple threat treatment (day 2) and already feeling a little better. All associated symptoms with this infection should go away after eradication correct?
