What causes pain around the waist and hips indicate?

I am experiencing several areas of discomfort: What feels like moderate stabbing like in my left side just about the waistline which began yesterday morning. The second area is my right side but lower in the hip area and that feels similar to a spasm. The third area is the underside of my left buttock. None of these have caused any sleep, eating or movement issues but all 3 of them are making themselves known! I do have osteoarthritis and scoliosis in my back. I have seen a back surgeon and I do not require back surgery and are currently managing the back pain with specific exercises and as needed pain meds. My left knee is eventually due for a replacement and is currently being managed the same as the back with the addition of a knee brace.

You can manage this pain by applying cold compressors to the painful parts of your body, Allow your body to have enough rests, apply topical anti-inflammatory drugs and over the counter analgesics with muscle relaxants.

After that, If you still experiencing the symptoms, you have to do re-check with your doctor.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
