Do you have diabetes?

have diabetes, But I have never been treated for it. [my age is 61]

I have had the same symptons. My sugar count is good. My Dr did a nerve conduction test which showed nerve damage called neuropathy. Good Luck. You need to see a Dr. After many RX's and treatments I am now seeing a chiropractor and I am having good results. You can see my previous posts under Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome.
