Disc bulging indicates disc prolapse. That is also the reason you are suffering from pain.
Your doctor will advise analgesic which can be Non steroidal anti inflammatory drugs, Non opioid analgesics or opioid analgesics depending on the intensity of pain.

Other available options are
1. Physiotherapy and exercises. Physiotherapy procedures like TENS, Ultrasound therapy, Muscle stimulation will provide pain relief
2. Lumbar traction, lumbar support also help relive pain
3. Surgical intervention may be necessary if pain does not subside with above mentioned methods. You may need to undergo discectomy which will relieve you of pain

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help

Thank you,
