The doctor needs to do more tests, but this was his tentative diagnosis. It’s happened four times in the last two years. I wake up in the middle of the night sore legs, and feel disoriented. A blood test last October and one just this morning showed “elevated muscle enzymes.”
The ER doctor called it acute Rhabdomyolysis, and sent me to my regular doctor for more tests. My appointment is this morning.
Anybody every had this? How do I prevent it from recurring in the future?
I found my lab report

I see it shows high levels of two types of creatine. I take creatine monohydrate. Is the fix as simple as quitting creatine?
