Welcome to Healthcaremagic,
Your mother is having fever and bodyache and weakness, which possibly points to some kind of viral infection.
But as she has undergone angioplasty recently this must not be ignored and consult your Physician/Cardiologist as after examination appropriate test can be performed if required like complete blood count, an x ray chest and urine analysis.
To make her comfortable a paracetamol can be used safely.
If it is simple viral fever it should settle down in few days otherwise treatment depends on cause.
You can continue all your medicines and hope this helps you to take appropriate decision about your health.
Take care.
Good Luck.
