my body hurts when it gets cold
Why does my body mainly my arms,hands and legs hurt so badly when the weather goes from hot to cold? Should I see a doctor about this issue?

Re: my body hurts when it gets cold
I would, as this can be a symptom of arthritis. Arthritis pain can be sharp in the joints specifically, or can be more diffuse like a severe aching or burning in the joints and surrounding areas, like the arms and legs between the joints. Blood tests and xrays in addition to physical exam and history would be helpful. Redness and swelling of joints and stiffness after inactivity, like first thing in AM, is also common. There are different kinds of arthritis that can affect young and old, so I would get it checked out.
