Vitamin D and Pain

  1. Vitamin D deficiency can cause non-specific body pain
  2. Vitamin D deficiency is a contributor to chronic low back pain
  3. Vitamin D deficiency correlates with opioid drug need
  4. Vitamin D deficiency associated with muscle pain with statins (CoQ10 contributes to this as well)
  5. Vitamin D deficiency is associated with non-specific musculoskeletal pain

If you know someone with some kind of pain syndrome or are just in pain, don’t tell them to take Vitamin D but to get their levels checked.
