A deficiency in the B-vitamins causes shooting pains!! Because the B-vitamins (vitamin B12, vitamin B5, vitamin B3 (niacin), vitamin B2 (riboflavin), etc...) effects the nerves system in our bodies. you might want to get a blood test done to see if you are low in these B-vitamins and also magnesium; the nurse will take the blood test, you just have to tell him/her which nutrients exactly you want checked up (and it's the B-vitamins and magnesium!)Source(s): I read ALOT about nutrition!!!
