Time to see doc!: Back & neck pain have many causes, including arthritis and disc disease. Since your pain is getting worse, it's certainly time to find out what is wrong. Then, treatment can be given to help. See a doc & get a physical and appropriate lab and x-rays or imaging studies based on what the exam suggests. Treatment helps all sorts of back conditions to be more manageable, even if there's no "cure."

No.: You can get infection at the site of hair follicles, but you cannot get sores vaginally. You need to be seen by a doctor who can check your herpes viral titers.

Possibly: They are of two types. The leiomyoma occurs in the skin or gut but the common form is the uterine fibroid. Rhabdomyomas are rare tumors of muscles, they occur in childhood and often become malignant assuming this is a uterine fibroid, if it were in the proper anatomic location it could cause vascular compromise, nerve compression, pelvic cramping or even a referred pain pattern.

Very Few: While laser eye surgery (lasik, prk) is very safe, there can rarley be complications that may affect vision. Most commonly, the eye may not achieve perfect vision, and an enhancement may be needed later. Dry eyes can occur and last for several months, and small abrasions may be present for a few days. More rarely, surface skin can sometimes grow under the flap, causing blurred vision.

Depends on u & type: This depends on the type of surgery done and what condition you are in at the time of surgery and whether there were any complications with the surgery. For an outpatient microdisectomy, it can range from activity restriction for several weeks and some home exercises to a full fledged physical therapy program of at least 6 weeks with a more involved surgery like a multilevel fusion.
