I have had issues with different pains since I started strength training. I get a pain in my elbow and can feel it popping every time I do certain exercises. It started about a month into strength training and I never figured out if it was from an injury (I also fell around this time so I may have injured it) or if it was from working out. I started taking glucosamine and I think it has helped some but I don't know if it would help with what you are describing.

I've also had issues in the past with a pinched nerve so I think that could be what's going on as well. When I had a pinched nerve I had numbness and tingling in my fingers.

I also had pain just above my knee the other day and it was like a spasm almost and fairly painful. I looked that one up and I think it was from overuse. It went away.

If it were me, I would probably wait a few days to see if it goes away on it's own before making an appt with your doctor. I might just try ice or ibuprofen to see if that helps.
