Hello there...I can understand your concern. Slip or bulged disc  cannot  be relocated by any means.... If you rest for some days you can avoid bulged disc pressing nerve root, there by reduce symptoms....  If the prolapse is mild doctor will advice you physiotherapy, if it doesn't  work and pain in severe surgery  is the final option... kindly consult a  neurosurgeon...you might need an MRI scan also.
