Hi
Thank you for asking HCM.
I have gone through your query. Your joint and muscular pain can be due to low vitamin D and calcium in blood. Vit d level and calcium of blood should be checked.If it is low calcium and vitamin D3 supplements should be taken. You should also get a regular exercise and have a balanced diet rich in calcium. You should also get some sunlight exposure every day for normal production of vitamin d3. Hope this may help you.
Let me know if you have any further queries.
