Would ck levels in blood work show myosotis and would ck levels

Customer Question

would ck levels in blood work show myosotis and would ck levels in blood work show nerve damage I have a connective tissue disorder dermatomyosotis and/or lupus sle and have had a sever reaction to naproxen which has given me a neuro bladder and lots of nerve pain which leads me to my best question if I may is when I had a biopsy from my face from a heliotrope eruption they used I believe a peripheral nerve block anasthetic and I felt brilliant for about 4 days this was getting better a peak of four days then gradually getting back to same old things again everywhere I've asked think I'm crazy..? But if I have peripheral nerve damage surly this is why I felt better with those symptoms that the naproxen and I believe the sle had given me...? Please help I feel as if I'm going mad here!?!

HelloThey would show myositis if it were prominant.Not in the early stages.CK levels would not show nerve damage.Peripheral nerve damage would be revealed by an EMG/nerve conduction study.
