Brief Answer:

Repeat the levels

Detailed Answer:

Hi,

Sorry for the delayed response.

Both lack of exercise and low Vit D levels can cause such muscle spasm and subsequent pains.

I suggest you get the Vit D levels checked if on the lower side may have to start the supplement Vit D 60k once weekly for the next 6 weeks.

Also, exercising regularly can avoid such musculoskeletal problems.

Hope I have answered your query.

Take care
