I get a prickly / tingling sensation in my lower back while I'm doing a lying down psoas stretch. Any ideas why this might be?
Hi. Just today out of nowhere I started getting a tingling numb sensation in my lower back. Is this something I should worry about?
It depends on....:
Symptoms like you have described can come and go on their own. So I would advise you to monitor yourself for few days and do not worry about the potential cause (as we may not find it).
Try to relax and take a daily walk, preferably early in the morning.
If these symptoms continue and start getting worse over next 1-2 weeks, then you will need a medical check up by your doctor. ...Read more

There can be many reasons, but my first impression is a problem with the sciatic nerve, a large nerve coming out of the back, getting smaller and smaller until it ends in the feet. A neurosurgeon, orthopedist specializing in spine, or chiropractor may help you with this problem.
Your primary physician may be able to recommend someone.

What are the symptoms of having a herniated disk in the lower back? I have numbness and tingling in the lower back when sitting?
Many symptoms...: While this could be a sign of a herniated disc, it sounds a little more like facet arthritis as it does not radiate to different areas and does not have a constant dull ache. That being said, a physical exam and imaging would be necessary to be sure. If you are concerned about an actual herniation, then I would recommend seeing a physician for an exam to be safe. ...Read more

The leg pain may follow later than the tingling because inflammation takes time to develop. ...Read more

Probably muscular: The neck and low back are covered with small muscles. These get stretched and bruised with regular movement. Small nerves travel through these muscles to the arms and legs. Spasms of these muscles can pinch the nerves and cause numbness and tingling. The muscles will feel sore when you massage. A good medical evaluation would be appropriate. ...Read more
