IIH. Pins on hands and feet, fatigue, headache, pain in knees. On Diamox. Reason?

Hi. I was diagnosed with IIH at the end of 2011. I have been taking Diamox ever since. I am now taking 6, 250mg tablets a day and have been on this strength for 4 months. I have regular pins and needles in my hands and feet as well as fatigue, I also get headaches. Lately I have had terrible pain in my knees and I was wondering if it might be connected to the diamox or IIH?
