Malaria/typhoid: If you are feeling better after treatment, and back to your normal routine, I don't think you need to worry about chills on your legs alone. It will eventually go away. But if they become swollen or becomes painful, you may want to see a doctor as it maybe signs of something else, like blood clot.
