Hi there...I can understand your concern. Loss of sensations and numbness over feet is usually due to peripheral neuropathy. Peuropathy neuropathy could be caused diabetes, nerve degeneration, trauma. Difficulty in movements in that age could be due to osteoarthritis. He will need detailed clinical examination and further investigations. So kindly consult a neurologist for further evaluation.
