Thank you so much for writing me back. Even after all the research I have done on the internet on the disease, your post shed a lot more light on the possible reasons for my development of this disorder. I have had heat stroke SEVERAL times, shaking chills several times, and had multiple major muscle/bone injuries. The reason is insignificant except the fact that I have been "clean" of these scenarios for at least 2 years. I don't really even drink and take my pain medication as prescribed (or less) by my physician. I have been super depressed at times in my life and attempted to take myself out by overdosing but that hasn't happened in a long time either. Looks like I did some major body damage that is going to give me more than just pain as I grow older. My friends joke about me being "punch drunk" for all the concussions that I have had. Even though I graduated with honors from an ivy league university, I could NEVER do anything like that now. Right now, I also MAY have DVT but my doctors are dancing around officially diagnosing it.
You are the best. Thanks a million and best wishes!
I truly appreciate your post and will work on staying hydrated all the time. This last CK test was high so I am just going to have to keep at it.
