If you have chronic muscle tension and/or bone pain of inexplicable origin, you may want to consider taking a vitamin D test. Recent research has shown that chronic muscle tension can be caused by a vitamin D deficiency. See vitamindcouncil.org for more info. For me, the main symptoms were chronic tension in the neck, shoulders, back and hamstrings. It took me three years before I figured out what was wrong. After I started taking an ultra high (50,000 IU/week) prescription dose of vitamin D (D3 to be exact) the symptoms gradually went away over the course of a few weeks.

Anyone experiencing chronic pain should be tested instead of simply taking medication to maintain it because the pain might be related to a more serious condition. Taking the right medicine sometimes means getting good nutrition. http://www.fosamaxclassactionlawsuit.com
