What to ask a podiatrist?
For balance problems, Id see a physiotherapist first. Your loss of proprioception may be multifaceted.
Neuropathy could be from somewhere in the spine.

I agree with what you say about the help a physiotherapist can offer. Fortunately, my neurologist is a physiatrist working out of a clinic with several good physiotherapists on staff.
I've had several central nervous system MRIs––brain, cervical, thoracic, and lumbar––since I've been working with these people. Nothing was revealed indicating my present PN besides my being a rather heavy drinker 30 years ago (that showed in my brain MRI). Sitting down with my podiatrist and later my orthopedic doc to discuss my PN is an attempt to "leave no stone unturned."
That's been one of my mottos since dealing with PN: "Leave no stone unturned."
