Brief Answer:
As explained.

Detailed Answer:
Thank for your query.
I have read the history carefully and understood the concerns.
The pain looks to be originating in the back and the pain in the abdomen may be a referred one.
Please also watch for any linear skin rash as may occur in herpes. If present, you have to consult a Physician to get an appropriate treatment.
If there is no skin rash or marking, please consult an Orthopedic Surgeon for clinical evaluation, examination, investigation - MRI may be needed.

I hope this answers your query.
Please feel free to give any additional history.
