I would suggest you to get your blood sugar monitored on a regular basis . Also a blood Hb 1 Ac tests needs to be done to monitor sugar levels.

Diabetes is one very commonly associated with such nerve problems and can result in the similar symptoms.

Tab. fluoxetine 20 mg daily along with blood sugar levels can help.
