Brief Answer:
Imaging studies like X ray/ CT scan required.

Detailed Answer:
Hi...
Welcome to HCM.
Thank you for the post.
I have read your query and understand your concern.

Spine related problems like Lumbar spondylosis, Spondylolisthesis, Disc prolapse or Arthritis can cause your symptoms. I would advice you to get imaging studies like X ray/ CT scan to confirm them.

Pelvic inflammatory disease, Endometriosis (even though both are rare possibilities in your case) should also be ruled out.

Tests for Rheumatoid Arthritis should be done for your joint pain.

You can take Tramadol injections for pain if other over the counter drugs are not helping you.
Hope this helps you.

Kindly get back to me if you have further queries.

Regards.
