Skin and swallowing sensation?

For the past week I have been feeling different. It is not something that has been a progression, I just woke up one day and something has changed. If i touch my skin the sensation in my fingers and any part of my body I touch both feel less sensation than normal. Its hard to explain, if I itch my arm I can feel it, but not the feeling of me itching it, just that I am touching it, as if the normal sensation is dampened. Also when I swallow with an empty mouth my throat feels no sensation at all. If i pinch my skin I feel less pain than normal and when I shower I am feeling little definition between hot and cold, I can be standing under the shower at scolding temperatures but barely feel it. I also seem to be sleeping a lot and have little energy, but think that is just down to working long hours on a farm. I have done a little research to see what it could be but havn't come back with much. I'm hoping that it is just lack in chemical/nutrients, but have worse fears as I know similar symptoms occur in brain tumors and MS, I havn't seen a doctor yet as hoped it would pass but a week on im thinking maybe I should?

Any suggestions/thoughts would be appreciated, Thanks
