Basics: The wording just suggests there might have been a minimal injury some time in the past but there is no evidence for a new one now. It just means it appears normal with a little fudge factor thrown in.

Depends: Depends on if you have nerve symptoms. If you have only back pain or sciatica type pain but no weakness or numbness or bowel or bladder problems, then you don't have to, but may want to see one to discuss first non-surgical options of treatment and then if they do not work, then possible surgical options.

Reactive Arthritis: It is common to have achy joints with having gonorrhea, and is called gonococcal arthritis. Treating the gonorrhea generally helps with the arthritis, although can take some time. If after 6 weeks these joint aches don't go away with treatment, i would recommend you to see a rheumatologist for further evaluation.

Not really.: Lyme disease should be treated with Doxycycline as recommened by the cdc and national academy of medicine, (except in children-amoxicillin, and pregnant females-erythromycin.)you can take an otc NSAID like Aleve (naproxen) for your jont pain, or get an rx from your pcp. Arthritis is a main feature of lyme, and needs more than symptom control. 3-0mega fatty acids can reduce inflammation and improve lipids.
