EMG,MRI,Nerve block: Those three test could diagnose this problem. We start with clinical suspicion order MRI it will show wasting of the adductor muscle. Emg could also could diagnose it. Finally we could do nerve block to confirm the diagnosis.

Do not think so : I am not aware of any connection between celiac disease, which primarily involves gluten intolerance and causes diarrhea, and sciatica. Sciatica is usually caused by edema around this nerve or pinching of the nerve.

I'm a man, should I get human papilloma virus vaccine to avoid genital warts and cancer?

Yes: The vaccine has been approved by the fda for ages 9-26 in men. The biggest advantage of the vaccine is to reduce the spread of the virus to women, which can be aided by reducing the number of men with the virus. Male genital cancer is much rarer than female cervical cancer, so the major benefit is preventing some types of warts an spread to women.

Unlikely: If he eye injury was severe enough to change the focus of the eye, you likely are not an ideal candidate for lasik. Sometimes, with limited scarring of the cornea prk can be used to clear the cornea - this is lasik without the flap performed directly on the anterior corneal surface.
