This is likely to be Peripheral Neuropathy.

Peripheral Neuropathy occurs due to weakness of the nerves and gives rise to various sensations in the nerves. This can occur due to diabetes, thyroid disorders, stress, anxiety, aging, etc.

See your doctor for this and discuss about tests for this conditions.

Meanwhile, take a Multivitamin B capsule which can help in this. Also take Gatorade which can help with electrolyte imbalance. These two steps will help you control this.

But also discuss with your doctor.
