We'll need the reference ("normal") ranges for your FT3 and FT4.  Ranges have to come from your own lab report because they vary lab to lab.

Your B-12 is way too low.  In some countries, the lower end of the B-12 range is 500.  Your result is abysmal.  It probably accounts for the numbness and tingling you've been experiencing.  Once you start to supplement, be sure to follow up to make sure your level is going up.  Pernicious anemia is the inability to absorb B-12 through the gut.  If you have PA, oral supplements will do you no good.  

Vitamin D is also much lower than it has to be for proper thyroid health.  D deficiency can cause hypo-like symptoms, and D is also necessary for the synthesis of thyroid hormones and must be present in cells for thyroid hormones to get in and do their work.  Some doctors will prescribe 50,000 IU per week of D until the level rises and then scale back as necessary.  You might ask your doctor about that.

What's HB?

Every cell in your body needs thyroid hormone.  So, it's important not to ignore hypothyroidism for too long.  I'll have more to say once you've posted ranges.
