Pains around pelvis, lower back, sore throat, aches, lost appetite. What can be done?

My mom is sick and she hasnt gotten better for a while now. She always feels worse in the evening. She gets aches and pains specifically around her pelvis and lower back area and had the traditional cold symptoms prior with nausea, sore throat , aches and pains and fatigue . She still has the fatigue, and hasnt bounced back to her usual self much at all. Shes now having trouble with her bladder in that she is losing control of it sometimes. She has lost her normal appetite as well and no longer enjoys eating nor wants to eat despite having an empty stomache.

How old is your mom ? If she is fortyplus and there are other children also,she could be suffering from some deficiency disease like osteoporosis or else some arthritic problem in hip,spine etc. History of prolonged sore throat points to some infective pathology as well.For proper evaluation,get a thrat swab culture for bacteriological study and suitable antibiotic.Consult orthopedic surgeon with X ray of pelvis with both hips AP And Lateral views,bone densitometry-Dexascan,arthritis profile tests,CBC,Serum calcium,ionic calcium,ESR,CRP etc.Also urine culture for infection of urinary tract,Ultrasound for kidney,For all this ,she must have a systematic follow up with doctors,physicians.
