I was a 25 years old soldier playing football when I felt my thigh muscle started to burn as if someone had peppered my muscles. I collapsed after the match and was taken to the hospital. I could not feel my legs; my whole body was swollen. At the hospital I was asked to pass my urine when I realized that the color of my urine was very dark. I did some blood tests and it showed that my CPK (creatine phosphokinase) level was 11000 at the time.
