Thanks for coming to HCM. Lumbar degenerative disc disease generally starts with an injury to lower back, mostly twisting injury. It is common in the your age group. You can take some anti-inflammatory medicines available over-the-counter and for pain. If required, you can visit orthopedic specialist who can advice physical therapy & exercises to strenthen hamstrings & lower back muscles. Applying heat/ice also help some people.

Orthopedic specialist from HCM can add their opinion.

Wish you feel better soon.
