Depending on the reports, vitamin d3 dosage can be prescribed as per amounts of deficiency. Calcirol sachets are available in different strengths ,your doctor shall advise dosing as per requirements.
Also b12 deficiency is treated with injectable or oral meds. Metycobalamin, neurobion tabs are avalaible, dosing as per requirements.
However, I may suggest, Dexa scans for bone mineral density. For further evaluation, for signs of osteoporosis with calcium, vitamin deficiency as reported. Calcium supplement or calcium regulating meds may be additional requirements which need be assessed for.
There should be physiotherapy for shoulder, neck ,back along with anti inflammatory meds. For pain
hope your doctor considered it all.

we suggest you can do hot water fermentation and ice therapy at home. If you have shoulder pain then the stiffness will develop more that might make the arm to have less improvement which might make you to feel more pain the arm. And also cervical pillow can be used which might make you to have better posture of the shoulder neck and arm We also suggest patients to do shoulder mobilization exercises ie. general shoulder movements/neck movements which will help you to improve the blood circulation.or knee pain you have to do the strengthening exersises .for eg 'keep towel under the knee press for a while count up to 10,then keep a towel at the ankle press as the same
