Probably not: Mild leg length inequality, deviated nasal septum and facial asymmetry are very common. So, those traits are difficult to associate with gr ii listhesis, which is not very common in a young person like yourself. Anterior abdominal pain is unlikely to be related to it either.

Doubtful: The spinal problem could contribute to unequal leg length but there is no connection with nose deviation, facial asymmetry or luq abdominal or muscular pain as far as i can see.
