In brief: Low back pain

Depending on your clinical history ; exam findings, that could suggest lumbar radicular nerve root or sciatic nerve pain from stretching nerves.
As well, paraspinal erector muscles commonly accompanies lumbar disc degeneration, and can hurt when stretched. Meninges (membranes encasing the spine and nerve roots) can also hurt when stretched. Have your neurologist check you out. Good luck!
