Brief Answer:
Arthritis of spine may be the cause

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for posting and I understand your concern. I need to know better to understand your problem like-
1. What is the duration of your suffering?
2. Any family history of multiple joint pains?
3. What makes the pain worse?
Your symptoms are suggestive of some sort of arthritis which is affecting the spine.
My suggestion for you would be get following test done and see me afterwards- serum RA factor, ANA test, Anti CCP antibody test and serum uric acid, HLAB27.

Please get back to me with the details and if possible along with the reports.
Meanwhile may continue with the pain killer medicine along with hot water fomentation.

Be positive and do not lose hope.
Take care
