    I know I have osteoarthritis and have come to live with it, but this new and sudden bone pain between knees and ankles is new. I also have it in my neck and shoulders to a severe degree. I can't believe osteoarthritis could get that bad almost overnight. I take magnesium, vitamins, ginko biloba, and drink spring water. I don't drink milk, but rather use almond milk sparingly. I also take tramadol, ambien, and Lyrica. Could any of these be causing the pain?

    Lyrica can cause myalgias (muscle aches), but the medications you've listed do notL typically cause bone pain. Your symptoms could be related to recent strenuous activity, or you could be coming down with a viral illness. You should discuss these symptoms with your doctor to help determine whether your pain is linked to medications, and whether you should continue taking Lyrica.
