Hello.
Well, firstly it can be due to pressure on the spinal nerves.

Other causes are -
decreased blood supply because of formation of plaque from atherosclerosis ,
decreased calcium, potassium, or sodium in your body
,Vitamin B12 deficiency.

You need clinical examination, X-Ray of spine ,blood tests to evaluate the cause.
Please make an appointment with your doctor for evaluation and treatment.
Take care
