How Can Pain In The Hips And Lower Back Be Treated?

I have had seizures and the last one woke me up. I couldn’t get up for about two hours. I went to the Dr and she is sending me to a neurologist Jan 22. I have been struggling off and on with pain in my hips and lower back. I thought it was due to surgery a few years ago. My question is I’ve had pain in my arms over the last year + and this is getting much worse. My hands an arms hurt so bad that I can barely pick up my phone or my cup. Also my hands swell more the more I hurt. What could cause this? My Dr said the last seizure could be a “lite mal” seizure. I feel like my entire body hurts most all the time. But my arms hurt much worse now. I’m not sure how to get relief.
