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

Unpinch the nerve.: Sounds like you have a disk herniation.

I recommend you get a good exam by a spine specialist, then follow instructions on use of medications, stretchs and activities modifications. ...Read more

Hard to say: One white spot on brain MRI is nonspecific. If it is in a particular area (corpus callosum) it would be more concerning, otherwise it could have been from prior brain infection (encephalitis) or trauma (shearing injury).
