Hi there I understand your concern...your symptoms are due to diabetic neuropathy...more than half people with diabetes develop these kind of symptoms...this is mainly due to insufficient blood supply to the peripheral nerves due to microvascular complications secondary to diabetes...other possible causes are chronic alcohol consumption,vitamin b12 deficiency,certain autoimmune diseases...consult nearest physician they will do the needful.
