Thank you for your replies, There are three causes that can cause pain over back and buttocks, these are genital infection or uterovaginal infection, slipped disc and kidney or urinary tract infection or stones.

Dr S.A.Alam :

You have risk factors for all of these possible causes so it is very difficult to differentiate one cause on basis of symptoms only.

My evaluation on basis of your symptoms that they are more over back and buttocks, you cannot touch your toes with tip of fingers while keeping knees straight and also you have history of disc problem is..

Dr S.A.Alam :

that this pain is due to your disc problem or sciatica, it is a problem in which nerve which supplies the legs over back is pinched due to disc or vertebral problems very common in women after 40 years of age.

Dr S.A.Alam :

If you do not have severe pain, no urinary or fecal incontinence or loss of bladder or bowel control and no numbness over the pelvic area then this problem is not severe and can be treated or helped by

Dr S.A.Alam :

simple painkillers like tylenol, advil, message of oil over back, physiotherapy

Dr S.A.Alam :

It takes few weeks of these measure to remove pain and stiff back.

Dr S.A.Alam :

In all such cases it is mandatory to have back X rays to see the extent of problem.
