|Very High MUSCLE ENZYMES - JB
Dec 19, 2000
Out of the blue I have developed extreme muscle aches, some which cause me to vomit. My doctor has found that I have an extremely high MUSCLE ENZIME, and has stopped all my meds. What does this mean?
Response from Dr. Bartlett
Rarely patients may develop elevated muscle enzymes due to their treatment. It appears that these elevations may be another manifestation of mitochondrial toxicities, and it usually resolves quickly when the drugs are stopped. I am sure that your doctor will follow your enzymes until they are normal, and then discuss the options for restarting treatment with you.
