The pain in such a situation can be due to Psoas Abscess ( a muscle at the back of abdomen). You have a very high ESR indicating chronic problem.
I would advise such a patient to undergo MRI of lower spine abdomen and hip area to confirm the diagnosis and go for further management.
MY view goes into favor of ruling out the tuberculosis of the spine tracking down along the muscles.
Please let us know the findings .
