...developing some..: Sounds like one is developing some form of Neuropathy (Peripheral). Nutritional, especially Vitamin deficiency- tend to cause these symptoms. But one should also have Doctor check for Diabetes or other Metabolic Disorders. Meanwhile some high level B-Complex vitamins could be added to diet.
