Strange sensation in legs / lower back when lifting

Hi all, I'm getting a strange sensation, mainly in my hamstrings, when lifting. It's not pain - more like an intense tingling sensation in my muscles. It's really off-putting and makes it hard to complete sets. Seems to get much worse when doing standing exercises and gets relieved a bit when...
