Get investigated and examined by a neurologist

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

I have gone through your question and understand your concerns.
Numbness over upper limb can be due to neuropathy.
Calf pain can be due to vitamin deficiency or electrolyte imbalance.
You should get examined by a neurologist.
Investigation like nerve conduction study, blood sugar, vitamin B 12, vitamin D, Thyroid profile, sodium, potassium, calcium, renal function and liver function test should be done.

Hope you found the answer helpful.
