Brief Answer:
Probably vitamin B deficiency, follow the advice below.

Detailed Answer:
Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

I understand your concern.

Your symptoms seem to be related to vitamin B deficiency.

Vitamin B can cause mouth ulcers and also affect the nerves.

It may cause peripheral neuropathy characterised by numbness.

I recommend you to do a complete blood count.

I also recommend to check the amount of folate, vitamin B-12 and vitamin C in your blood.

Meanwhile, I recommend you to take vitamin B-12 supplements.

I also recommend to make changes in your diet.

I suggest you to consume eggs, meat, legumes, seeds and nuts.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
