IF the above tests were all normal, I would recommend that do the following in addition to whatever treatment you are on,

Please consider taking high dose Vit D to have blood levels in the range of 50 to 100 n/ ml, this translates to around 10,000 IU per day for most people, please confirm this by Vit D blood level testing as well,
Also, try a high dose probiotic supplement like VISBIOME or VSL 3, these should be taken in the range of 500 billion CFU per day.
Take these for at least a couple of months, you may see a marked difference in your health problems,
Warm regards & stay safe

Hello doctor
Customer: replied 9 days ago.
Even they did vitamin d ,full blood count and ferritin levels as well
Customer: replied 9 days ago.
They are also normal
Customer: replied 9 days ago.
But vitamin d I have 160 n/ml
Customer: replied 9 days ago.
Hello doctor r u der...?

Yes, I am,

In that case, Vit D is above normal, you probably need to get it lower, get the calcium levels checked if not done so already, Get uric acid levels done

Take magnesium supplements and get in touch with a rhematologist if the problem persists,

Warm regards

Hello doctor
Customer: replied 9 days ago.
Can u respond me plz

Hi,

I have seen the results, they are all fine,

Warm regards

Customer: replied 9 days ago.
Then why I am getting persistent pains doctor...?

I cannot be sure, we need a physical examination, and then further tests as needed, the rheumatology part appears less likely, given the normal ESR,

Could it be excessive stress or change in lifestyle that is exacerbating the issue,

Warm regards

Customer: replied 9 days ago.
Okay
Customer: replied 9 days ago.
Is there anything else like hiv ...?

Hi,

Tough to say, things like Lyme's disease, Rickettsia etc are more likely to cauase this, but they are very rare too,

Warm regards

Okay
