In brief: Possible

Hyperparathyroidism will cause bones to be broken down.
Degenerative disc disease is the process where the discs are injured and inflammed. If bones are broken done, they can weaken and be more susceptiple to injury leading to bone pain.

In brief: Yes

There is a definite association between degenerative disc disease and hyperparathyroidism.
The most common cause of degenerative joint disease is due to repetitive stress "wear and tear" on the joint. However, many systemic diseases, including hyperparathyroidism, can also exacerbate or cause degenerative joint disease.

Hyperparathyroidism causes Osteoporosis as calcium from the bone is depleted and released in the circulation and that causes bones in the spine to be brittle due to lack of calcium and may contribute to Degenerative disc Disease
