In brief: Not immediately but.

Severe vitamin d deficiency can cause bone/muscle pain.
So obviously long term solution to treat such pain is to treat the deficiency with vit d under medical supervision. But vit d cannot provide immediate pain relief.

In brief: Yes

There actually is evidence that vitamin d can reduce inflammation directly, and can be used to alleviate pain.
Since the general population is getting less vitamin d than optimal, there are many disorders that are being influenced and helped by vitamin d. It's not the silver bullet that will fix everything, but a daily 1000iu dose can only help.
