It seems you have developed as PIVD ie a slip disc in layman`s language and the nerves coming out from your spine are getting pressed causing tingling. Get a xray of dorso lumdar spine or a MRI. For immediate relief take some pain killer, muscle relaxant and local heat treatment and rest. Thereafter consult an orthopedic surgeon who will advise you accordingly.
