Do you have any ranges for those numbers? It's hard to say without them, but your T4 looks a tiny bit high.

(Haematinics are the chemical agents or substances which are required for normal erythropoiesis (making of red blood cells). These are Iron (Fe), Cobalt (Co), Zinc (Zn), Vit-B12, Folic acid and Erythropoietin).

Vit D is definitely deficient. You might find that getting your Vit D up helps quite a lot to get rid of aches and pains. I'd look at supplementing between 3000iu and 5000iu a day (which is quite a bit more than the measly 400iu you normally find in mulitivits).

thank you

Your Vitamin B12 isn't brilliant either. Low B12 can cause pins and needles. Might be worth supplementing - you can't overdose, it just gets excreted.

thank you
