Those I had right from the start (I think they may have been worst the first few cycles) but they go away after a week or so. Cold weather will not be fun - I was lucky to start in April but even then chilly mornings made me cramp up, and the freezer aisle at the grocery store was painful. And definitely no cold drinks. But again all this is temporary.
My onc said if the symptoms were not gone by the next cycle that was when he would cut the dose further. But he also warned that neuropathy can peak after treatment.
