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

I have a dull aching pain in my lower back (left side)  I have numbness and tingling in my left thigh down to my knee. ?

Unpinch the nerve.: Sounds like you have a disk herniation. As long as the pain is tolerable, and you do not have progressive increasing weakness, or lose the ability to control the bladder or bowels, the vast majority of disk herniations can be treated without surgery. I recommend you get a good exam by a spine specialist, then follow instructions on use of medications, stretchs and activities modifications. ...Read more

I've seem this happen if someone leans heavily on crutches they have been using for a sprained knee. ...Read more
