Hello dear,
There is a condition of post stroke numbness .The stroke itself consists of one side of the body becoming numb..   Vitamin B  deficiency could also be possibly related to.  Also, they could just be a painful peripheral neuropathy due to a multitude of diseases such as diabetes which can be evaluated with EMG. As for treatment, there is no known cure but you could try neurontin, elavil, or tegretol. Good luck
