Hi and welcome.

The symptoms you described can be due to few reasons and the common ones are diabetic neuropathy, neuropathy due to vitamin B-12 deficiency and problem with nerves either in the back where they exit or down in the legs. I would recommend you to get your HbA1c for diabetes and your vitamin B-12 levels and and nerve conduction study for lower limbs. A visit to neurologist would be helpful for exact diagnosis after physical examination.

Let me know if you have further questions.
