Find out why: You shold go to see your doctor/spinal surgeon to find out why. Is there any new bulging, new tear, etc that requiring any surgical approach or is something that can be treated supportively. Something you will find from further testing. Definitely, you should have an MRI of ls done to evaluate this problem. You won;t know the treatment if you don't know the cause of the problem.
