In salary negotiations (after you have an offer), is it always necessary to disclose what you're making at your current job? Do they ever offer just based on what you're worth w/o knowing what you currently make? Is there any reason I shouldn't give them a number that's $5k over what I really make?

We answered this on the Side Episode that dropped today (7/23). Short answer is no it's not always necessary to share your current compensation. And yes companies do make offers with limited info. Usually leads to more negotiation, which is fine. As for last part of question, we talk a bit about that on show.
