Lower back pricking pain

I workout in the gym and generally lift heavy. When I was squatting with 200 pounds, I felt a prick kind of sensation in my last set last rep. Ever since I'm getting that sensation quite often like when I bend to tie the lace or when I try to bend sideways... However this has not stopped me completely from training.

Hello there.., Build muscle strength and flexibility.Abdominal and back muscle exercises (core-strengthening exercises) help condition these muscles so that they work together like a natural corset for your back. Flexibility in your hips and upper legs aligns your pelvic bones to improve how your back feels. .. Lift smart. Avoid heavy lifting, if possible, but if you must lift something heavy, let your legs do the work. Keep your back straight — no twisting — and bend only at the knees. Hold the load close to your body. Find a lifting partner if the object is heavy or awkward....
