Hello.
Thanks for writing to us.
The generalized body pain that you have could be related to a low Vitamin D3 levels or generalized viral infection. A few blood tests will help in detecting the cause.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.

Can you suggest what may cause much discomfort during the night with body aches that waken me every 2 hours. Aspirin doesn t ease things much or for long. I can feel fine going to bed and after 2 hours ache everywhere, particularly from the mid back down and behind my shoulder blades. My mattress is not the problem as this occurs anywhere I sleep. It is becoming difficult to get enough sleep to function well the next day. Only occasionally (3x a week) I also ache on and off during the day. This has gone on for months but normal bloodwork doesn t seem to show anything wrong. Thanks.

Hi.. my fiancé has been having bad pain lately. I m really worried, I couldn t make up of what it could be. But he says that all his organs feels like metal chains are wrapped around them. Everything feels like it just tightens, the pain goes away, but then it comes back and it repeats. Is there any answer to what s been causing this? I d greatly appriciate, Thanks.

My wife had been seeing doctors about her body pain, she has diabetic 2, taking numerous pain prescriptions but relief has not been felt. Just like this morning. She had long troubled sleep, she went toned at 9:00pm and got up at 7:00 am with body pain. We had attended mass at 8:00 and went back home to bed with bodily paid. What do you think is wrong with her and suggestion best possible treatment? How about Professional body massage clinics.

I really don t know how to explain my problem. My left ear has been having issues for a couple months. It died not hurt it just is an anoyance. It is like ringing but enstead of the ring I hear (what sounds to me) my own heart beat. At times it is so loud that it is affecting my hearing. Is there anything I can do. It is hard to concentrate on my normal life activities. It all started while I was deployed to Iraq.
