There can be no other thing causing this pain except disc prolapse. I would recommend you to get MRI to make sure about this diagnosis. After MRI treatment can be decided according to stage of the disease
1. if it shows protrusion then you should try physiotherapy, Pregabalin and Methylcobal tablet
2.If it shows extrusion then surgery will be needed.
