In brief: Neuropathy?

I will guess that you are referring to peripheral neuropathy.
This is a condition where the peripheral nerves do not function normally. Symptoms may include loss of sensation, numbness or "incorrect" sensations arising from the affected areas. This is often seen in diabetes, where the blood flow to the peripheral nerves (through the vasa nevrorum) is reduced or completely blocked.
