    Yes it can. Spinal stenosis refers to a narrowing of the spinal canal which can then affect the functioning of the nerves running to the rest of the body. That means that spinal stenosis can effect nerve functioning (causing neuropathy), say, in the legs, or elsewhere. The problem is the impinging of the nerves by the narrowed spinal canal.
