Group, Thanks to Leonard Diamond who tells me that according to his podiatrist the 3 most common causes of Stocking and Glove Neuropathy are: Diabetes, Alcoholism, and Vitamin B 12 deficiency. I neglected to mention that I am not diabetic, not an alcoholic (although I like my Guinness on occasion), and I have no vitamin deficiency. I know that trying to connect permanent nerve damage in the hands & feet to intense cycling is a long shot. I thought that if this has ever been done in or out of the medical fraternity, someone in this group would have heard about it. Thanks.
