Quit smoking or something else

I quit smoking 36 days back. Took 21mg patch sometimes for first 4 weeks and then taking 1/2 of 21mg patch (by cutting it). Went through the craving -- not having any more. Here is what bother me now:
* Feeling fever but no temperature
* Pains around the eye (sinus), head ache, usual discomforts that comes with fever
* If my back is touched with little pressure (or rather rubbed), it feels like burning. If I bend, I feel a pain on the left side of mid-spinal cord -- but when sit straight it does not pain. (I do lift 2 five gallon water refills once in a while to 1st floor -- if can be slip disk)
* Felt similar burning pain in some other part (but less) too -- arms and probably the head (touching hairs pains little bit)
* Took crosin -- night time sweating many times now but the heavy head goes away with crosin
* Morning cough out little pinkish cold once or twice
* Oxygen level is 95% on blood (tested few days before)

Do I need to go for medication/see a doctor now or just wait and watch (is it a kind of withdrawal symptom or an independent issue)?

could be physical withdrawal symptoms and it could be something else or a little of both.  
if you are tapering with the patch those severe of withdrawal are unusual.  at least i have never heard of it before.
i commend you on quitting.  i need to so bad and cannot.  :(   no matter what do not pick up a cigarette.  
you could talk to your doctor about getting some medications to ease withdrawals, but honestly after 36 days you should not be having them.
