Brief Answer:
Certain medical conditions to be ruled out.

Detailed Answer:


As per your symptoms, you possibly seem to experience the symptoms of a peripheral nerve damage

This could be related to the disease RLS or side effects of the drugs treating RLS.

Additionally, it's important to screen yourself for Thyroid issues, which may also cause such symptoms.

Anxiety and diabetes mellitus are other common causes which need to be explored during these symptoms.
