Dear Sir/Mam,
The symptoms that you are complaining abut are classical of peripheral neuropathy. It simply means that the nerves in the legs and hands are undergoing some damage which can due to so mean reasons. The important ones being,
2)Vit B12 deficiency
3)Heavy metal poisoning etc.
I suggest you meet a general physician who will tell you how to rule out the above conditions. Hope this has helped.
