Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum

1.Mild disc buldging is manageable by medicines & physiotherapy.
2.Surgery is indicated if the condition is severe &/ symptoms are severe.
3.You can try homoeopathy , it is safe for pain management .
4.Stiffness of the back is worse is cold/damp weather (for most people), so meanwhile you can try Hot fomentation (hot water bottle) at the site of pain, also massage with warm oil, at night. These will help you for a while in pain & stiffness.

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum
5 Years back it was a minor disc bulge, but now after % years it may have progressed to an extent where this disc bulge is compressing exiting nerve roots, which may be the cause for the pain.
So, more important is to get a fresh MRI done, & if it shows diffuse disc bulge which compressing exing nerce roots, Surgical intervention (Micro or endoscopic discectomy) is the preffered treatment. If Disc bulge is not much, You can try PHysiotherapy (esp. lumbar traction & IFT).
Take care

First get your fresh MRI of LS spine done. Let me know whether you need discectomy or not.
Any good neurosurgeon in bangalore will be doing this surgery & you have to find it out yourself. This surgery is very safe & result oriented.

welcome to HealthcareMagic.
You need to consult a Orthopaedic doctor to get examined & for treatment.You may require investigations fresh MRI of spine to locate the problem. lumbar traction will increases the intervertebral distance allowing reduction of the disc protrusion.start spinal exercises as well as postural guidance during rest and work is very important.
