Having fever and mild cold. Numbness in fingers and hands. Is the fever due to cold?

Ive had a mild cold for about a month two days ago i walked around with somewhat light clotges which made me cold outside in the evening. Same as yesterday. Since last night i havent been feeling good. Not just a minor cold. I ached. I hoped I would feel better in the morning. I woke up took my temperature and it peaked to 103degrees. Now my hands and fingers are numb and hard to move. I took ibuprofen .. Is it just a fever from my cold?

This could be because of fever only.
you must consult an ENT specialist and get examined as cause of infective focus needs to be found .It could be because of cold ie might be a source of infection in the nose due to nasal or sinus disease.
Rare chances are for the throat disease and because of infected tonsils which are carrying the infection in them and the body is not able to fight against the infection so the infection flares up on and off and there are bouts of fever and cold . and causes the immune system of body to become weak and the body becomes more prone for infections.
get examined and take proper antibiotic to remove the focus of infection.
