In brief: Diabetes
Most importantly, it could be diabetes.
Make sure and have your doctor check you for this very common condition. If that is not the cause, it could be a pinched nerve in the lower back, called herniated nucleus pulposus with radiculopathy.

In brief: Neuropathy
Most likely you have polyneuropathy, which is most commonly caused by diabetes in the us, leprosy worldwide.
Rarely, bilateral nerve compression at each ankle could present this way (tarsal tunnel syndrome). Get an EMG test. If negative, get a skin biopsy, looking for small fibre neuropathy. Blood testing may give answers.
