Best Multivitamin for an 18 year old?

Hi, I'm an 18 year old female. For the last few years, I have been having leg pain. Sometimes it occurs in the arms as well. The pain is inside the bone and it causes an "aching" feeling. If I don't take advil soon, the pain will get a little severe and I won't be able to sleep. I was wondering if this might be caused by a deficiency of calcium, perhaps? I've been thinking about my diet habits and I realize that I'm not getting enough vitamins and minerals. I thought it would be a good idea to start taking a multi-vitamin. The thing is that I don't know whether I should start with a Women's multi-vitamin or a Teen one. I see the commercials with women starting to take vitamins at 35 or so. Does anyone have any ideas on what would be the best for me?

Thanks!

If your 18 then I would stay with the adult vitamins. Try centrum multis but take extra calcium supplements- about 1200 mg per day.
