My ck's were at 7,000 and now down between 250 and 275, but still have severe muscle pain and my hands and face are turning purple again, but my rheummy said I am in remission so I am somewhat confused as to why I am having this horrible muscle pain and weakness flare up if in remission?
Thank you in advance,

I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia; however, I don't think it is a flare from fibro due to my skin turning purple again

Your question was posted in Jan... How are you feeling now? I was recently diagnosed with dermatomyositis in March. My ck levels are going down now at 865. Normal ck is 18, however anything under 200 is acceptable. I hope your feeling better!
I know this was posted six months ago. So I hope you are doing better now. I have been in what Dr.'s say is remission twice now. I went in remission at 15 and had a small relapse at 30 and back to remission at 33. I still too get inflammation flare ups especially by my calcifications that can get so hot my skin will actually be red as a firetruck and peel from the heat. I also have days where my whole body wants to shutdown. I have figured out that remission just means that I am not sustaining or showing an increase of high cpk levels but doesn't mean I am not going to feel like crap once in awhile. I hope you are doing better.
