Dear Dr.Okun,

What is the normal/higher CPK level?

Is anxiety and depression affected your higher level of CPK?

I will post for you as this is not my area of expertise.

The CK must be interpreted by an internist or cardiologist and there are fractions that indicate the type of muscle breakdown. In many cases elevations of a few hundred are normal, but you need to see an internist or cardiologist to be sure. When CK's get into the thousands it can be dangerous, and in some cases it heralds muscle disease. I will post for you.
