    Dear Anon_136673:
    It is impossible to diagnose the situation just from a limited description over the internet without a proper examination.
    The problem can definitely be related to the back pain and possibly a nerve problem.
    The best I can suggest to you is to go to your dentist and make sure that the problem is not dentally related. After that a proper examination by a neurologist is in order.
    Don't waste time. Go see your dentist as soon as you can.
    Best of luck and I'd love to know the final diagnosis,
    Dr. Zev Kaufman
