Yes,it can. but,you should go to see your doc for diagnosis. take care!
I have buldging disc at L4-5 and L3-4 and I have alot of pain in my hip and leg, I have problems at night sleeping because there is no way yo get comfortable. You need to have an MRI to rule out what is going on. I had an epidural and it helped. Good Luck and I hop you feel better.
