Normal for you...: Everybodys' body is different; if this is what normally occurs when you get sick(and you have no other health issues) then i would not look into it further; just accept this as part of "you". If not then please visit with your primary care physician and the two of you can explore this further. Best of luck.

Viral / illness sx: Part of most viral infections... Like a "cold or flu" will have myalgias as an initial symptom. Myalgia= muscle ache/ pain. Tylenol/advil helps along with rest and water....

Need to be seen: Cold intolerance raises the serious possibility of hypothyroidism, which only a physician can diagnose. A second possibility is mild congestive heart failure, with too little blood reading the skin. Pain in the legs can be anything from a neuropathy to serious vascular disease (gangrene risk) to metabolic bone disease.

Neuropathy: It sounds like your suffering from a peripheral neuropathy. This could be due to something as simple as a vitamin deficiency or as complicated as an immune neuropathy. Most neuropathies are treatable, including the cost when it is immune mediated. I agree that you need to see a neurologist to have the appropriate studies to determine the proper treatment.

Don't worry: There can be multiple causes, eg disc problem in back, statin meds, poor gait/ posture, lyme disease. While getting worked up, consider a psychiatrist who might help with your irrational fears. Depression and anxiety can cause unexplained pain syndromes.

Many causes: Common cetiologies include: checking your circulation status, looking for arthrtis in the ankle or knees and possibly even the low back for your symptoms. Other reasons may be possible and can be diagnosed by your pcp.
