can low ferritin cause muscle pain

hi i'm new to the forrum.  i'm a healthy 50 year old active female but have suffered with neck, shoulder, mid and upper back pain for years.  all my lab tetst are always excellent except my ferritin ranges between 16 and 24.  I'm told normal is 20-160 and so my previous doc (now retired) ran a few tests to be sure there's no sort of internal bleed but everything's great.  thyroid tests (tsh t3 and t4) all excellent.  anyway i have a new lady doc (she's terrific) and although my ferritin sometimes falls within the "normal" range and sometimes just below, she believes this so called normal range is not "optimal" and would like to see my ferritin up between 50 and 100 for me to feel better.  getting back to the neck etc. pain, i see a massage therapist and chiroprctor on a regular basis (every 2 weeks) which always me to stay active but this pain in the neck, shoulders, back is really getting me down.  anyone else out there with this problem?  i've started taking flordix supplements in the hopes boosting my ferrirn will help my pain.
