In brief: What is & not

Scoliosis does cause back pain unti 30's.
Sacroiliac inflammation is most likely, but signicant spondylolisthesis and degenerative disc disease is possible, since you are not having sciatica.

In brief: It's possible

Stress can definitely make back pain worse.
It could potentially cause it as well. I would first check in with your doctor for a complete exam, diagnosis, and treatment plan. Whatever the cause of your back pain do discuss stress management with your physician as well as chronic stress can cause other medical problems.
