Answered by Dr. Maruti Karale 38 minutes later

Thanks for query.

Numbness and cramps in feet can occur due to electrolyte disturbances like hypokalemia, hypocalcimia, hyponatremia, etc. Low hemoglobin and vitamin deficiencies like B12 or vitamin D can also lead to numbness and cramps.

These are few possibilities for your symptoms. If you need anymore information please let me know.
