Body pain, painful lumps in muscles around neck, knee, no relief with ultram. Cause?

hi, my wife started with pain in different spots in her body last week and has lumps in her musles, around her neck , and in back of her knees and other places. The lumps are painful. At the present time she is taking ultram for the pain. Her meds include: Toprol xl 12.5 mg, synthroid 50 mcg, Xanax .25 (at the present time she is tapering down to get off of Xanax) and asperin (81 mg). She is sensitive to many differ medicines. The ultram doesn t stop all the pain. What do you think could be her problem? thank you. rc

Hi rc,
Welcome to healthcare Magic!
Thee symptoms your wife iis sufferin is indicative of somee serious systemic inflammation.
she can be having a viral or bacterial infection or some times such symptoms mayy bee part of an autoimmune pathology like rheumatoid arthritis.
Sometimes vasculitis also present like this.
For a fine tuning of diagnosis she needs to be evaluated by a local physician and should get investigated.
delaying may affect the outcome.
I hope the advise would be informative and useful for you.
Take Care!
