Have you been messing with your actions by any way?

If it still buzzes after, check the bow of the neck. it might be backbowed.

Check your guitar neck relief. On the low E, fret the first fret and 17th fret then check for a small gap from the bottom of the string to top of the fret around 7~9th fret. If it is not exist then you will have to adjust the truss rod. If there is a lots then damn sure you will have to take it to a techies.

Also, try to raise the string height from the bridge to see if it helps or not. What guitar have you?

Also, a new nut may be in line, if it's slotted to deeply.

I have a similar problem to the ts when i fret the 1st fret and then the last (24th) I have more gap at the 10-12th fret than i do at the 7-9th how can i sort that out? its making the action at the 12th fret much higher than the rest of the neck. yo can actually see that the neck is dips towards the bottom right when you look down it from the headstock

Try to adjust the truss rod so that the gap is around a half a mm. Before doing anything there I suggest you to search "Truss Rod Adjustment" on google to get some basic infos on this. You can damage your neck if you overdo it.

About the nut, if your strings buzzing with open note than it might be a nut issue. When it comes to fretted note buzzing nut has nothing to do with it.

I advice you to raise your action at bridge first., though

okay they arent great but the best i can do, they might take a while to load if you click them, and the bow isnt as noticable as it is in person. When i measure the relief from 1st fret to 17th fret there is a tiny gap at almost all the frets and when i do it from 1st fret to 24th the largest gap is at the 11th-13th fret. also looking at the action of the string it is about 1.8mm at the 12th fret about 0.3 at the 1st fret and about 1.5mm at the last fret
