Hi XXXXXX,Welcome to Healthcare Magic.Such a feeling is called Stocking sensation and is mostly caused by neuropathy may be related to diabetes, vitamin B deficiency particularly cyanocobalmine or folate or it may be peripheral neuropathy of neurological cause.Please get some tests done. A blood B12 level, blood sugar fasting and Posprandial should be done. A review with a neurological is recommended.I hope the advise would be helpful.
