Leg pain and cold feet

Hi doctor, Almost every morning when I wake up there is mild leg pain on both legs which gradually goes away and strikes back somewhere in daytime or evening and last for a longer duration. I also feel cold and numb around my thighs and knee region. The pain is mild and is very discomfortable. Sometimes it occurs on only one leg either left or right. Also I can feel weakness on legs but that is rare.
