In brief: Frequent headaches
Your 25(oh)d level is 26.
3 and TSH 6.97 correct? They are both mildly low. The interesting thing is both low vitamin d and hypothyroidism (even when considered subclinical) are often associated with myopathy and other pain syndromes including frequent tension headaches and migraines. It would be a good idea for you to discuss with your doctor about treatment for these two conditions.

In brief: Hypothyroidism
Your TSH is high.
That indicates hypothyroidism, and needs to be see seen and started on replacement therapy.

In brief: Dyslipidemia
Thyroid uses cholesterol to make hormones - if thyroid is low then body creates more temporary metabolities like lipoprotein a which is very painful since it causes damage to vessel wall with vascular inflammation - to relieve this use Niacin as neuro-htp available from biotics take 4 times a day for headache relief.
