extreme muscle pain
May 30, 2013

extreme muscle pain and extreme fatigue for 4 months...counts 1300 vl 40. all tests came back fine...I cannot work I am so there anything else I can test for?

Response from Mr. Vergel

I am assuming that you are on HIV medications since your viral load is 40 copies/ml. I am not sure if you are taking other medications like statins. Talk to you physician about possibly testing your CPK blood levels. You may want to read more about CPK here: Risk of elevated CPK

Please let us know what you find out. High CPK is only one of the possible causes for your symptoms.
