Vitamin d deficiency

I was advised to get my blood tested for vitamin d and b12 levels after I had regular and continuous  pain in bones and heel. The results showed: 4.98 ng/ml hydroxyvitamin d serum and 289 vitamin b12. I was given a supplement of 6 lars/lacs dose and b12 tablets. After 20 days still my bones and muscles are paining.
