Numbness in hand and feet can have many causes and it is important to ensure that causes related to nerve involvement (distal neuropathies) are ruled out. Since hand and feet and furthest away from spinal cord, their involvement may signify early nerve related diseases. I'd recommend you to visit a neurologist for detailed examination and tests to get the diagnosis.
