I have bulging discs and terrible sciatica (also arthritis and a wicked bun spur in my hip -- I'm a mess!), it is chronic and I'll probably have it for life, however, losing weight has helped tremendously. Tremendously. Don't give up on losing weight. I was even able to return to running -- not the amount I used to do, but enough to get those feel-good endorphins!
You can do it with NO exercise, it is all about your food management. Throw all your effort into getting the weight off through a really good food plan, it is worth the effort!
