Brief Answer:
Calcium and vitamin D 3 supplements needed.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for posting your query.
I have seen the attached report. The bone mineral density of your mother is low and is suggestive of age related osteoporosis. This can cause the pain in bones and joints and fatigue that she is feeling.
Other investigations needed are Serum B12 and Serum Vit D levels and she needs to start supplements according to the levels.
She can start with a mild pain killer, regular calcium and vitamin D3 supplements and mild exercise along with a healthy calcium rich diet to control these pains.
Do consult her orthopedician for proper prescriptions after detailed examination in case mild pain killers and calcium supplements do not help.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
