Neurologist 's  Response
At this young age your problems are so many and so disabling. You have both problems with sensation and with strength. This combination is often seen in neurological illnesses involving peripheral nerves. you have not mentioned about the duration for which you have been having all these problems. apart from examination by a doctor, the tests you may have to under go are nerve conduction studies and some blood tests. You should consult a neurologist who will guide you further.
Good luck.
