Hallo Ursula
It may be due to peripheral neuropathy or can be a symptom of underlying anxiety disorder. There are a few things one should exclude that can cause peripheral neuropathy like underlying diabetes or vit B deficiency. Also check for thyroid problems. Please discuss with your doctor for possible blood tests
