I am 52 years old male. I have been facing joint pain since last 30 years. Tried many Ibugesic Paracetamol tablets but without any relief. Since last 15 days, I have been taking Vitamin C and Vitamin D tablets and getting good relief. Is it feasible to continue taking these tabs? If so, for how many months/years?

You may be having deficiency of vitamin D. Normal level of vit D is between between 20-50 ng/ml. A level less than 20 ng/ml indicates Vitamin D deficiency. 1. Expose yourself to sunlight for 15-20 minutes daily in the morning 2. Take Milk, cheese, egg yolk, Fish (salmon/mackerel/ trout/sardines/tuna) cod liver oil, Mushroom, cereals, orange juice. 3. If you have deficiency of Vitamin D you have to take Vitamin D supplement 60000IU/week fo r 3 months after consulting physician.
