Severe hand and legs pain can be caused due to many reasons other than lack of Vitamin C. I would 1st request you to due a Blood test to identify the levels and then only proceed in course of action. Vitamin C is found highest in gooseberry (amla) and other citrus fruits kiwi, guava, orange, sweet lime etc. Ensure at least 150g of these fruits are consumed on a daily basis.
