My legs are hurting (throbbing pain) so much right now

Patient: My legs are hurting (throbbing pain) so much right now. It extends from my thigh all the way to my toes. Usually it’s just my right leg, but i have it on both legs tonight. The only way i deal with them is through pain killers and by hitting my knee cap or cracking my toes. it always happens at night, never during the day. It gets worse when the weather is cold. I’ve been having these occasional but sever pain on my legs since about 9 yrs. Old. I’m 21 yrs. Old, female, university student. Please help. I want to know what’s wrong with me.
