In brief: Simple or Not.

Having cramping, numbness and tingling in all four extremities would best be considered after a thorough exam and evaluation.
The symptoms can be caused by a multiple of reasons that must be considered and eliminated. Having these symptoms for only 2-3 weeks does not necessarily mean the underlying cause has not existed longer. Start with a primary care physician, then possibly, a neurologist.
