Welcome to XXXXXXX
I advice you to calculate you BMI, using online calculator which are available on most of the site.
I think you will fall in over weight category. Loosing weight not only will be helpful reducing the back pain but also useful in cases of PCOD. Pain in abdomen might be due to cyst i advice you to go for ultrasound to confirm.
Back pain can be benefited by correcting posture and physiotherapy, using stretches and traction. The therapist will show you how to do exercises that make your back muscles stronger, so you can prevent future back pain.
But it is very important to loose weight.
Hope I have provided the information you needed.
Wish you good health. Take care.
