Brief Answer: get your calcium and vitamin D levels checked Detailed Answer: Hello XXXX, A low calcium and Vitamin D levels may cause cramps and body aches on a regular basis. It can also present in the neck and back as pain. I suggest you to get your serum calcium and Vitamin D levels checked, and report back to me with the report. If the test reports are low, you will need oral calcium and Vitamin D supplementation. Meanwhile, please consume a glass of milk without fail daily. Also, do stretching and other moderate physical exercises to remain in good health. Regards,
