I have a 4 cm cyst in the inner side of my leg/knee.
It has stumped four doctors, who are confused about
what it is, despite xray and MRI.
The knee doctor says I have to have general anesthesia to remove it.
I NEVER had this issue before late stage Lyme.
I just wanted to post and add myself to the list of people with a cyst and Lyme.
This is quite painful and appears to be pressing on a nerve.
I did German Lyme doctor recommended Azithromycin and Tinidazole this winter because the tick that bit me was near Kaiserslautern Germany.
I went back to the US in early fall and did a month of Doxycycline and Tinidazole and two earlier regimens of Doxycycline alone, one 25 days initially and one 14 days after it came back in August.
Nerve pain and fatigue are gone but now I have this knee problem.
It happened after I had just re-introduced light jogging.
The doctor can find no mechanical reason for the cyst, no sign of arthritis, no problem with the knee.
The doctors are confused about
why it is there so perhaps I will know better when they get it out and analyze it.
