Have IIH, had spinal tap 1 month ago. Heels numb/tingle, part of knees feel pinched/numb. Memory getting worse, head and eyes hurting. Need spine tap?
See a neurologist: If your symptoms are getting worse and you have a shunt, you may need to have the shunt/settings evaluated by your neurosurgeon. If no shunt, then see a neurologist.

I have intermittent tingling in my toes (bilateral) l heel, and l shoulder. Mri of spine was clear. All lab tests wnl (thyroid, b12, a1c, etc) ideas?
