Brief Answer:
Thyroid disorder, anxiety, peripheral neuropathy

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for choosing XXXXXXX After analyzing your query I feel you might be suffering from thyroid disorder, usually hypothyroidism can present like this. Kindly get your blood investigated for free T3, T4 and TSH levels(thyroid stimulating hormone). If the levels are less then you might need thyroxine supplementation.
Also get your blood pressure checked, decreased BP i.e hypotension can be a contributing cause.
Rarely anxiety disorder can present like this.
Peripheral neuropathy which is common as age advances can present like this.
Treatment will be cause oriented.
