Many possibilities: This constellation of symptoms may be as simple as a viral illness or as severe as spinal cord compression. Much more information is needed and a full examination necessary to determine the source and appropriate treatment options.

Complex, but: Consider there could be a developing peripheral neuropathy, and perhaps underlying cause such as pernicious anemia or thyroid disease. But your complaints could be indicative of multiple sclerosis or other types of central nervous system dysfunction. Do not worry regarding above comments, be pro-active, see a doctor and get this addressed.
