comment Cold and fever after doing extensive cardio sport?
I've experienced this a few times. Usually when pushing hard mountain biking for long sessions. Eventually turns into cold sweats and shivering/fever. Just a hunch but I believe it stems from low electrolytes combined with low blood sugar. Are you ingesting any sports drinks (such as gatorade) to keep your electrolytes and sugars up?

@EvanPlaice "So if the lymphatic system is how the body cleans up damaged tissues, and your DOMS are actually caused by tissue damage, recovering from your tissue damage means doing everything you can to help that system perform as well as it can."

comment What to do with sore muscles
Stretching, warming up, and cooling down (literally, with ice/cool water), haven't been shown to have any impact on soreness (see this answer).
