4 years ago I was diagnosed with 4 cervical herniated

4 years ago I was diagnosed with 4 cervical herniated discs. I went for another MRI this year to check up on my neck, and now I suddenly I have no herniated discs in my neck but am in much more constant pain than I was 4 years ago.
Is it possible for herniated discs to heal completely on their own?

I am a male, 24 years old. 3 years ago I was in the process of getting the HPV vaccine. I had 2 out of the 3 shots when I started having intimate contact with a girl who had previously been treated for cervical dysplasia. A few months later i got the third shot in the HPV vaccine. Fast forward to summer 2014, I start having intimate contact with another girl. She is diagnosed with cervical dysplasia in mid-September. My questions: Did I contract hpv from the initial girl if she had already been treated a few years earlier, and i was in the process of being vaccinated? Is it possible i transferred hpv to the second girl? Is it possible the second girl transferred hpv to me because, though i have the vaccine, i was intimate with someone who had it before? (essentially making the vaccine useless) Does having sex with someone who has cervical dysplasia make me more at-risk for the serious cancers associated with HPV in males like genital cancer and throat cancer?

I am 38 years old, have been diagnosed with cervical dysplasia, herniated disks few years ago. I felt flu-like symptoms last week and sore throat, then got migraines for 3 days. thought I as getting better but getting hot flashes every 1/2 hr. First I thought it might be from the raw ginger I was eating but haven t eaten any for almost a week. When I look up what can cause hot flashes besides menopause, I get really worried about the answers!
