Hi there!

Well, without a detailed description or a detailed clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of your symptoms. Possibilities that may need to be considered include inadequate diet, low blood sugar, neuro-muscular causes such as neuropathies, infections, inflammations, micronutrient deficiencies, medication/ drug side effect, stress/ anxiety etc. I would suggest getting this evaluated by an internist initially and depending on the cause diagnosed/ suspected, it can be managed accordingly or specialist care may be sought.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
