Thank you for posting your query.
Based on your symptoms, you need to be evaluated by a neurologist/neurosurgeon. In addition, an MRI
of the spine, focussing on the lumbar spine
needs to be done.
Initial treatment for degenerating discs would be medical (with medications such as pregabalin
capsules) and physiotherapy
If there is no significant improvement with the above, then, epidural injections or surgery may be considered.
I hope it helps. Please get back if you require any additional information.
Wishing you good health,
