Back pain

My girl friend is a type 1 diabetic and has high blood pressure she's 32 years old. She's been having really bad back pain like really bad. Mostly her lower back. She says by her tail bone the most. She says it feels like a ton of pressure on her bones she cry's day and night. She doesn't eat because of the pain she was 140lbs right now she's 114 in less than 3 weeks. Ive taken her to the ER twice this week for d.k.a.we tell the doctors but all they do is give her norcos. They took an X-ray and said she has arthritis. But then another "doctor" said it was a do to an UTI. I'm tired of seeing her in pain I'm getting anxiety and stressed out.

I am so sorry. No one deserves that. See if she can see another doctor..any new perspective  would be helpful.
