Thanks for posting your query.
Generalized body aches with numbness in hands and feet can be due to a systemic cause like electrolyte imbalance, vitamin B complex or methylcobalamin deficiency, generalized viral illness, peripheral vascular disease, diabetes, neuropathy, etc.
You need to keep your body well hydrated with plenty of fresh fruit juices.
Regular intake of rejuvenating fluids might help. Apart from the sports drinks which contain glucose and electrolytes you must have enough water alongwith to avoid dehydration.
Taking vitamin B complex supplements and methylcobalamin supplements for at least two weeks regularly will help in reducing your problem.
In case the problem is persistent, then a detailed evaluation is needed under the guidance of your physician to find out the cause. The treatment will then depend on the cause detected.
I hope this answers your query.
