I didn't go for any tests for it.
But I'm suspecting it to be ,because generally I do feel pain in my legs and back.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing back,

Pain over the legs and back generally, could be due to multiple reasons, most commonly being vit D and calcium deficiency. I would suggest it better for you to test for your vitamin D and serum calcium levels.

Meanwhile, I would advice you to start with multi vitamin tablets, like, T. SHELCAL 500 for a month's duration, which will help in resolving minor deficiencies.

Also consume a diet comprising of dairy products, cheese, beef, egg yolks, fish like tuna, salmon etc.

I hope this helps,

Please feel free to discuss further or else kindly close and share your positive feedback,
