Because of imbalances in calcium and phosphorus, you can get boneloss due to kidney issues. I didn't have any pain, but I know that I lost bone mass during this time and while I was on dialysis. Things improved after my transplant. I would talk to your doc and try to determine the source of the pain. It could be something unrelated like arthritis.
