Hi,
Thanks for the query
I understand your concern
Please note that the causes of headache are many and the important causes of headache at this age are temporal arteritis, brain infection/bleed/tumour. I will suggest you to do Blood erythrocyte sedimentation rate to exclude the diagnosis of temporal arteritis. I will further suggest you to get MRI scan of the brain as CT scan may miss minor problems. Leg pain can be due to pinched nerves which can be detected by a nerve conduction study. Let me know where are you from so that I will guide you to XXXXXXX a local neurologist

Let me know if you need any additional information

Best wishes
