In brief: Possible neuropathy
Neuropathy can happen as a result of trauma, or nerve damage due to the consumption of alcohol or certain medications.
Symptoms can range from a numbness and tingling sensation, possibly a burning sensation, to an uncomfortable painful sensation of the extremities. Get evaluated by a professional to determine the exact cause in order to get the appropriate treatment.

It is possible you may have restless legs syndrome.
Check with your doctor to see if you are anemic. Have him check your ferritin level also.

In brief: Needs more workup
There are multiple causes for paresthesias, and a more extensive lab workup (e.
g. Checking for b12, thyroid, and diabetes (using a glucose tolerance test, not just a fasting sugar or a1c)) can be helpful. Additional information can often be gleaned from functional testing (such as nerve conduction studies) and/or skin biopsy to look for small fiber neuropathy. A neurologist can help guide workup.
