My son is 17 and last march he had rhabdomyolysis and stayed in the hositpal for two weeks with ck levels over 16,000. They asure me that he would not get it again as long as I keep him on fluids. Since then his ck level have went up and down over the past year. This past Janurary he woke up and could not walk they said the flu attacked his brain but the mir showed that the brain was healing its self and in three weeks he was walking. But he changed completely he quit his job, his grades dropped, no longer laughing and making jokes, and no friends. I took him back to the doctor and now his ck level are begining to rise and his protein and on top of that while doing track practice his heart rate rose of 200 beats. I know in my heart that the doctors are missing something. I don't know what else to do I am afraid he might be on the field and callapse.View Thread
