HI,
How are you? What other symptoms are present?  Lumbar disc problems usually present with lower back pain, weakness, numbness, and tingling that radiates to the buttocks, legs, and feet. Headaches are usually associated with cervical disc problems. Pain medications and anti-inflammatory medications may help provide relief.  If the pain persists, it is best that you have this checked for proper evaluation. Additional imaging studies may also be done to rule out other conditions present like infection and other musculoskeletal issues. Take care and do keep us posted.
