From your medical history seems you have vascular haeadaches or migraine and the back pain with tingling numbness is different problem.You should get xray or mri to rule out back problem,it might be a simple muscle cramp but needs to be evaluated clinically..
You can visit a neurologist and get some anti migraine drugs to help you..
