All symptoms you described suggest that you may have a central neurological problem. Sensory and motor systems are both affected. These are very non- specific symptoms and can happen in many conditions after the nervous system, and one of them is multiple sclerosis, which needs to be ruled out in your case.
I suggest that you see a neurologist immediately for the consultation and investigations. Thank you.
