Possible neuropathy!: It depends on what other symptoms are associated. If you are having low back pain it could be a disc herniated with pinged nerve. It could also be another type of nerve irritation which could be caused by multiple reasons. That type of pain is usually attributed to some type of nerve irritation or damage. Follow up with your doctor in order to get further testing.
