My son spent a week in the hospital about 2 weeks ago. His CPK level was 113,000, which I can see from other post is unheard of. Other than 2 workouts (both were not strenous) back to back & some weight lifting and maybe a little dehydrations, they could find nothing to be the cause of the elevated CPKs. He's never had a problem with remaining hydrated during a workout before. His kidneys are liver are fine.
I'm completely confused as to why and how this happened. He's been very athletic since he was 4 years old. He's had many workouts in the dead heat of summer (about 100 degrees, sometimes more) and has never had anything indicating a problem with muscle detoriation. I'm completely blow away by others who have post elevated levels of 2000 - 6000....if that's considered extremely dangerous, what does that make my son's situation???!!!
