Ok, so troubling outcome from the tests.

Her thyroid levels were in the normal range indicating no issues there. However, in the general panel there was a very slight elevation in liver enzyme and a significant increase in Creatine phosphokinase (CPK). The level he said was comparable to what was was seen in a human heart attack patient. She hasn't had any seizures or heart attacks(her heart rate was low-normal in checkup), nor any obvious trauma to her muscles. We are going to re-test in 3 weeks to check it out again and make sure that the exercise she got the morning of her appointment wasn't the cause of the elevation. Perhaps the exercise combined with her sore joints caused the elevation....

In the mean-time we're to keep an eye out for symptoms of heart failure
