That is very strange indeed. It's not a normal reaction at all. Muscle pains are well known to be associated with calcium deficiency and Vitamin D deficiency, but not with taking the combination. Perhaps it's the type of calcium in the vitamins. You need to see if an alternative source of calcium, such as Tums, which contains calcium carbonate has the same effect. An alternative source of vitamin D is a balanced diet and sunshine.
