At the same time I started experiencing large muscle pain that was not resolved with NSAIDS and did not go away with time off, so I went to my GP. She checked my CPK and noticed it was at 250. This was with a week of no exercise. She told me that explains the muscle pain and the ammonia smell but doesn't tell her what is actually wrong. She has sent me to a rheumatologist. I made the appointment but now I'm wondering if this is the right specialist. It looks like they do arthritis and I doubt if that is the problem. The pain is not generally in joints, it is all over, and it has suddenly come up.
Not looking for a diagnosis, just wondering if I'm going to the right specialist.
Thanks in advance
