Hi Jen,

Coastiewife was correct. The blood test is CPK.

The doctor would most likely run a few tests to rule out any other causes. Your CPK would be tested. An EMG would be run to check the muscle response with nerve activity. An MRI might be done to rule out any other causes. Depending on the other test results a muscle biopsy could also be ordered.

The following website gives more insight on Myositis.

Take care,
