Many explanations.: In your case, the most likely explanation for numbness, tingling and strange pain in both feet, is peripheral neuropathy due to diabetes. Often the simplest explanation is the most likely, but sometimes there are other factors involved. My best suggestion is to discuss this with your regular doctor so you can be treated, as well as have causes explored and fixed where possible. Health is wealth!

Neuropathy: You have listed multiple problems contribute to the development of neuropathy. It could be multifactorial in your situation. Nerve conduction study might help to some extent to find out the type of injury to the nerves and the possible cause.
