I have 2bulging discs and other problems in my lumbar spine.  My right ass cheek and down the right leg hurt like hell.  Why does my back problem make my ass hurt?  What can help stop the pain (without meds) ???

Beer in copious quantities?

The foot bone connected to the leg bone,
The leg bone connected to the knee bone,
The knee bone connected to the thigh bone,
The thigh bone connected to the back bone,
The back bone connected to the neck bone,
The neck bone connected to the head bone...

Is why.

The thigh bone connected to the back bone....

Yeah, and there are a bunch of nerves that thread through your spine and down your butt to your legs.  

Ask your doctor for some pain relieving tips or find a support group of people with the same problem.  There are probably a bunch of 'em online.

You might get some relief by topical treatment with either a capsaicin cream or DMSO.  

Good luck!
