Persistent Unexplained Muscle Aches

Asked for Female, 22 years

I have been dealing with unexplained muscle aches & soreness for everyday years. On days leading up to & following my period, it's the most intense & uncomfortable that I struggle to get myself up and sometimes cannot. It feels like intense aching, tenderness, and soreness. I feel it in every muscle in my body from my cheeks aching, my fingertips, my arms, my torso, my back. etc. It is not my joints aching, rather my muscles and it is NOT relieved at all by OTC pain meds. What's going on?

Dear Patient,

I'm sorry to hear that. Do you take any multivitamins? The first step would be to take any nutritional/multivitamin supplement.
Secondly, have you ever tested your vitamin D? Kindly test your vitamin D. If it's low we can help you treat it. At the same time if these aches are generalized or accompanied by stiffness then you should see a rheumatologist.
