Feel sore on sides by rib cage and back by shoulder blades. Lower back a little by kidneys. Had gynecology appt in sept and was fine. Have been taking vit d and calcium ( when I remember)since then daily because d was very low. Can't explain this bloated feeling.feel like I need to stretch like ribs etc feel scrunched up. Am heavier than ever. Always struggle with my weight. I smoke and drink beer:(

Thanks for writing to us.
The soreness in the shoulders and ribs could be due to generalized muscle cramps or fatigue related to vitamin D 3 deficiency or due to the excessive alcohol intake. Do decrease their abuse to decrease the symptoms.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
