Lower back pain and tingles (feels like needles) in back and abdomen

I'm a 60 year old man that is in great shape. I have worked out 5 days a week for a number of years. I started having some lower back pain on and off a couple of years ago. I really didn't think much of it, because it did happen all that often.

However, in the last month it has gotten somewhat worse, with a new symptom. I now have a feeling like little needles being stuck into my back and torso, and sometimes my arms or legs and upper chest. This can happen when I'm walking, standing, or working out, but not all the time. It's more severe when I do heavier weights. Mainly something like curls standing up. So I have had to back off, which is frustrating. Plus my neck seems to crack a lot when I turn it to the right.

Any one have an idea what might be causing this? Pinched nerve? Disk?
