I am 66, male and have been having pain in the lower most waist below spinal cord end since last week. I thought it might have been due to lifting heavy and weighty bags while traveling from Chennai to hyderabad and hence took a variety of pain killers besides applying pain balms but the pain still persists. This has hindered my daily morning walking habits too.

Keep ice which will reduce the inflammation and that will there by reduce the pain Anaemia always leads to the symptoms of being tired that can also be reason to have frequent pain in the whole body especially in the waist. Once the oxygen levels in the blood comes down it automatically leads to improper functioning of the joints and muscles. It is also due to vacuum created in the joints as once the body lacks oxygen automatically the body becomes arid and that is one reason to get frequent pain the body ie. More prone to get pain the waist. The hip muscles become tired thereby straining in a day with any physical activity might lead to waist / hip pain. And also wear MCR chappals which will help you to prevent the weight falling on the hip while standing.
