Hello. There is no evidence that benzodiazepines can cause a sensory neuropathy. I would ask what your orthodromic sensory conduction velocities were? Do you have ankle reflexes? What is your proprioceptive and vibratory response in your feet? What about your hands? Have you had the immunologic screen testing? Toxic metals or organic solvent exposure? Get back to me to discuss? Dr Frank
