You are probably worrying about nothing,yes you may be hypochondriac.But sometimes rarely your lower back intervertebral discs may have prolapsed a bit due to severe bouts of sneezing..causing mild compression of the nerve roots coming out by the discs,cuasing the tingling pain.You wil need to confirm this with a Spine /ortho surgeon.
