Have IIH and bulging disc below where my ribs start. Started having numbness and tingling around knee or in heel whether sitting or standing.

Nerve testing: The level you are describing for you disc herniation would not be expected to cause the numbness in that area. I would expect something lower down in the spine. There are some nerves in the legs that can develop neuropathies. EMG/NCV testing may help with the diagnosis. A Physiatrist or Neurologist may help you get to the bottom of you diagnosis. ...Read more

The is referred to as as cervical neuropahy, if it comes from the spine, or brachial neuropathy, if it comes from lower down. I've seem this happen if someone leans heavily on crutches they have been using for a sprained knee. ...Read more

I have numbness and tingling in my whole left side of body (under investigation) but why are these areas more painful to touch?

Why indeed: Whatever is causing the numbness & tingling is also causing the painful sensation. The sense of touch is multimodality & of mind-mangling complexity. When you say the areas are "more painful, " do you mean allodynia, hyperpathia, dysesthesia or hyperalgesia? (The idea is now for you to look up those terms and try to determine which 1 (or more) applies to you.) ...Read more
