It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. You may take an over the counter multivitamin supplement plus sub-lingual vitamin B12, in case it is due to vitamin deficiency. If that does not help, it would be prudent to see a doctor. Wish you good health!

Small Fiber Neuropathy could present in this fashion, but there are many causes, so not feasible to be precise. Anxiety could be secondary, but cannot fully exclude when subjective symptoms occur.
