Several: Focal low back pain that radiates down the leg to the sole of the foot, and is worsened by straining, coughing, sneezing, and may awaken at nite. The foot may feel numb, and you may have problems with foot strength on downward flexing of the foot. You will likely lose the ankle jerk reflex on that side. Easiest to get examined by your doctor, and decide treatment approach.
