Welcome to XXXXXXX and Thanks for posting your query.

According to your description, your wife might be having Vitamn D deficiency.

Vitamin D is essential for calcium absorption and bone health. Among other things, inadequate vitamin D intake can result in a softening of bone surfaces, called osteomalacia, which causes pain.

When it is really cold, your muscles tense up tightly to your body to help retain heat. Sometimes this frequent, restricting tightness in your muscles can be painful .

Meanwhile following measures will help your wife with the pain:-
Have Warm shower.
Sleep on an electric heating pad under the area that is bothering you.
Stretch you muscles really well to keep them loose.
To keep your muscles warm during the day, there are many topical creams and
Take dite rch in calcium, vitamin D and minerals.

I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
