How do I start running even though I have disc problems

It's been a few years since I had an MRI but I have two degenerated discs that give me problems now and then. What do I need to do to start running for exercise?

Once a year or so one will herniate- not caused by anything that I can put my finger on. It just happens. I am in very good shape and fully capable of running OTHER than this. Is it a bad idea overall or is there a way I can start running that will cause little impact on my back?
Yes, I know you're not a doctor and I should ask my doctor but my appointment isn't for a few months and I wanted some preliminary advice.
