Brief Answer:
Get investigations done.

Detailed Answer:

I have read your query.

It is very great to know that your worked for 3 days a week at the age of 72.

From your symptoms it seems that in previous days you might have done some heavy work and had not taken your medication or diet properly.

I suggest you to get your thyroid status, fasting blood sugar levels and morning blood pressure levels checked and send me the reports.

Till then you should take rest and try to avoid squatting and pushing/pulling of heavy objects.

Take your medication regularly. Add tablet of aceclofenac+thiocolchicoside combination by the prescription of your local doctor in your already prescribed medications.

Do back and quadriceps strengthening exercises as uploaded on you tube.

Have balanced diet, avoid smoking and drinking.

Apply hot packs for 30 mins in morning and evening to all your joints.

I hope it helps.

I can hARDLY FALL ASLEEP, walk and my back and legs are in pain constantly. In am 57 man, july 2007 years ago have right knee meniscuous tear repair surgery, 03/01/12 had to go to the emergency room I couldnt urinate and when forced in terrible pain and lot of blood came out, spen all day in the emergency room until the infectiion and blood stopped looked like an infected blood clot to me, but Dr says it was kidney and bladder infection . After all the test, they say I have a cyst on each kidney, but that doesnt has anything to do with it. Only thing that made me feltr better for about 2 weeks after the emergency room was the morphine shot they gave me, I was able to walk at least 12 blocks back and forth to see the doctor. Now if I lift anything I get pain at both side of my lower back, on this week and am feeling worst, cant sleep a lot of muscle, bone pain , extremely pain in my back and very very week, walk half of block and got to stop to rest.
