Thank you for your question.I would strongly recommend that you be seen and be tested further with blood tests with dry mouth, constipation and back pain.There are many conditions such as thyroid problem, disc problem in your lower back, high levels of calcium or glucose in your blood, multiple myeloma (rare cause) that need to be considered and ruled out.So I would recommend that you be seen to have these and other conditions be considered and ruled out by history, physical examination and testing.This session is open for any number of further questions that you may have.Please rate me by clicking on one of the rating options at your end on the top right hand corner, as that is the only way I am credited on here for helping you out.Kindest regards
