bicycle peddling and TTS

Posted by bill on 5/19/03 at 17:50 (119315)

First time question.
I have severe numbness, tingling, pain in both feet and ankles ; especially at night. I have long time lower back problems and blamed that for my foot problems. Recently I was diagnosed with perphiral neurapathy
(idiopathic). In other words, the doc's don't know what is causing it but don't think it is the back. I workout EVERY DAY for about 30 minutes on a recumbent exercise bike, and have for many years. My question...Is there evidence that this type of exercise contributes to to TTS and thus peripheral neurapathy? Thanks for your opinions

I myself am searching for a diagnosis of PN (going to the neur. this weds.) have you read the books on this? Numb Toes aching soles?
I got it from a dear friend from this site and it has been a plethora of information.
YOu should look into it.
