Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for being in follow-up and providing further details.

Considering loss of sensations and strength,I would suggest that its better for you to get a physical examination done by a neurologist.Nerve conduction studies might be needed to establish the diagnosis.

Please visit a neurologist in person for the sake of diagnosis.That's in your best interest.

Hope that helps.If you have any further questions,I shall be glad to have you in follow-up else please close the thread,rate it and write a review.
