Virus Infection: If this is short term, virus infections often make nerves sensitive to heat or cold. Exercise by doing pushups but leaving your knees on the floor extends the back & strecthes soft tissue; it often helps to desensitize nerves in the back & spine. Neurologist evauation if no improvement is important for more serious causes.
