Musculoskeletal Pain Due to Vitamin D Deficiency

Numerous studies over the past ten years have shown that vitamin D deficiency is more prevalent than most doctors realize. Symptoms of vitamin D deficiency include musculoskeletal pain and weakness that may be confused with fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue syndrome. The main contributing factor to vitamin D deficiency is inadequate sunlight exposure.

Treatment in most cases was 300,000 IU of vitamin D3 once a month intramuscularly, plus 1,000 mg/day of calcium and 800 IU/day of vitamin D3 orally. In most cases, symptoms disappeared within one to three months, although one patient needed seven months of treatment.
