It feels like there are pins poking my back. What causes this? Is it worth seeking medical attention?

In brief: If bothersome; YES

If your symptoms are still bothersome to you after you've tried the normal standard types of procedures or OTC medications for such problems and if your symptoms are interfering with your daily life, especially work and/or school then, I think it's worth a doctor's visit.
