unusual swelling all over, particularly around eyes and eyelids themselves. unusually tired, more pain (diffuse, all over). what do you think, does this sound familiar to anyone?

Ok I'm confused.
Went to a Rhmy had xrays and blood tests.
Nothing wrong with joints. Thyroid is messed up again. Dx Hypothyroid over 10 yrs ago. Now he says it hyper and changed meds.
Also Vit D is low, 11.
Started Vit D, 1 per wk for 8 wks.
I have pain from head to toe, I know both of above can cause the pain. Never had pain like this in my life.
Been checking other levels on lab and need in put from all and any.
eGFR is >59
Creatinine, Serum is 0.75
ALT is 42
I am 51 yrs. and about 20 lbs. overweight. Do these numbers seem about normal. They all say they either high or low.
Just trying to wrap my head around all of this.
Thanks for anything that may help.
May the sun shine on you and warm your heart.
