Hello!

It sounds that you have some form of peripheral neuropathy as the cause. There are many possible causes. It could relate to diabetes, B12 deficiency, autoimmune disease or exposure to certain toxins such as organophosphates in pesticides or heavy metals such as lead, cadmium or mercury.Other causes possible as well....

You need further evaluation as to the underlying cause. You may need to see neurologist for further evaluation and testing.

Treatment and prognosis depend very much on the cause of the condition.
