Hello, welcome to Justanswer, I will try to assist you with your medical question, and any medical information you seek
Have you had any blood tests?
No, I haven't
Any fevers or chills?
How bad is the pain on a scale of 1-10?
At its worse, it is 5, and through part of the day, I don't feel it at all. I do feel it more when using my hands and arms; I use the computer keyboard a lot on my job. I don't do any heavy lifting, however, or any exercise other than walking.
Okay, I would recommend some blood tests to make sure you do not have any muscle damage
The first test is a serum creatine kinase
Other tests to rule out inflammation would include a CRP and ESR
Is there anything else you would recommend?
The other test would be a complete metabolic profile to determine if it is due to abnormal electrolytes
Ok--thank you. Is there anything else, or is this the end of your response?
That is all
If you have more questions on this topic feel free to ask
Are you still there?
