Spinal curvature: Hyperlordosis or "swayback" is when the lower back has an increased curvature. This alone does not usually cause symptoms. Tingling, pain and pressure going to the hip,groin and thigh may indicate a neurologic issue from compression of nerve structures in the spine. You should see a physician for further evaluation of your pain and tingling.
