Hi. I had delivered a baby boy in June 2016. My knees and lower back is paining lot since two months. I am breastfeeding also started solid food to my baby. I am taking calcium, iron also. I did vitamin d test and reports are showing low. so doctor gave me injection and gave vitamin d tablets which I will have to take once in a week. Whenever I walk or stand up my knees pain a lot. Please reply what could be the reason for paining so much?

As advised by Sonali Shivlani.

Low levels of Vitamin D3 also mean that calcium absorption is not optimum and this can cause pain in the weight bearing areas especially the legs and the lower back. Please take your supplements as prescribed and repeat the blood test in three months.
