Welcome to HCM.
bloating,pain is most likely due to excessive gas formation after indigestion.
Take rebeprazole,pentoprazole/domperidone to subside it.
Take nsaid/muscle relaxant to subside back pain but take it with some food,milk and continue above medicine .
B12,calcium,d3,vitamin supplement will be helpful at this age.
Apply nsaid gel locally.
Start exercise,yoga regularly.
Drink more water and fruit juices,vegetable soups,buttermilk.
X-ray lumber region is necessary to ruler out cause of back pain.
