Brief Answer:
She is suffering from lumber spondylosis.

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for posting your query.I have gone through your query and understand your health concerns.
She is suffering from lumber spondylosis.These are basically age related degenerative changes i and is characterized by joint pain and stiffness. Upon movement the stiffness gradually relives. Sometimes application of hot pads can make the movement possible.
The treatment options include pain killers, hot fomentation, lubricating agents like glucosamine sulfate, chondroitin , dycerin, etc and some life style modifications and physiotherapy.
Right now you can start taking Tablet Tylenol ( Acetaminophen) Double Strength after breakfast and after dinner. It is suggested to add calcium supplements 500mg each twice daily. This will take care of your mild symptoms in 3-5 days.
Methylcobalamine 1500 mg daily will also help her .

I hope this answers your query.
