Why can't I run when its cold out?

Hi there. I have been waiting to see a neurologist for a few months now and have had these symptoms for around a year. Progressively getting worse until now. There are many symptoms. I find it awkward when walking especially when it is cold. I cannot run. My legs simply do not have the coordination to run or jump. If it is cold my legs tremble, especially the left leg. I have no pain whatsoever anywhere. Sometimes I get dropfoot when I walk. I have to concentrate when I walk. If somebody is watching me walk then it gets worse. Then as I disappear around the corner out of sight it eases off. I have a weak grip sometimes. Usually in the morning, difficulty with buttons, opening bottles, holding a full cup of tea. I cannot walk steadily with a cup of tea without spilling, as if concentrating on walking causes my arm and hand to tense up. If I get a surprise then I jump like crazy. If I was walking down the road and my phone suddenly rang I would nearly fall over with the surprise. My body just tenses/clenches up. I get serious leg/feet/toe cramps at night. When I yawn my whole body sort of contorts and I can't stop my hands contorting. If I sneeze I have to brace myself. If there's anything in my hand it goes flying. Also I have to support myself against something in fear of collapsing. If I'm nervous my legs shake like crazy. They never did that before about a year ago. If I'm talking to a crowd of people sometimes I get nervous and my eyes start clenching. Some kind of facial spasm. There are many more but I'd like to hear your opinion on this. Much appreciated. Derek
