You have a lot going on. I too had difficulty swallowing coupled with a very high fever. I'm not sure if you've had your CPK levels checked. I have myositis and I know it will cause difficulty swallowing. I wish you the best.

Hi, @taylordmitri – welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. Sounds like you are familiar with what @jcbonne1 and others have talked about with swallowing difficulties from your own experience.

You talked about having a doctor check the creatine phosphokinase (also known as creatine kinase, CPK, or CK) levels. Is this test the one that helped arrive at your diagnosis of myositis, or inflammatory muscle pain? Did you have symptoms for quite some time before a diagnosis was made?
