The sometimes painful and always recurring epidydimal cyst I was dealing with off and on for 3 years has finally gone.

It has been several weeks since it has bothered me last.

Of all the things I treated this with Lysine (3000mg daily) and Olive Leaf extract (2 capsules) has had the most effective and lasting result. I believe I have been using these together for 2-3 months.

Taking the Lysine no longer aggravates the area as it once did, so it was healing it all along. Both supplements were Vitacost brand.

This should have cleared with the long term antibiotics according to the medical professionals. Been there done that, and it didn't clear.

The pain was more likely related to a virus somehow associated with the cyst.

Arganine just made it worse so I steer clear of that.

A cyst or lipoma?

I have several lipomas on the underside of skin, you can pull them away from muscle- trying dmso on them.
Had initial lyme symptoms late 80's, then again and with bullseye early 90's. Ended ABX for Lyme in 2015. Rebuilding / fine tuning / fixing muscles since then; member "10 Percenters Lyme Club". What an adventure this has been. Hashimotos adds to the enjoyment.

This was officially diagnosed by ultrasound as a fluid filled cyst. I have been told these are often painless but this one may have been getting larger at times and pushing on a nerve so it went from uncomfortable to painful.

It would vary back and forth for a long while.

It rapidly became scary painful very shortly after I first got to this home which unbeknownst to me was mold sick.

I do have a lipoma but that is on my arm. It has been shrinking as I improve but this has taken a very long time.

Interesting. I’ve dealt with these for the past three or four years. This is the first time I’ve seen mention of someone experiencing something similar.

I had one nestled beneath my earlobe. It had a cycle to it, swelling, filling with oily blood, and receding, like clockwork. Every couple of weeks.

That process continued for about a year before I sought a doctor’s opinion on it, as I attributed it to Lyme, and I was in my “screw going to the doctor ever again” phase.

I got a referral to an ENT who agreed to remove it. After, he told me there were tons of little tracts leading to the area, and that I’d always be at risk for developing more.

Sure enough, another popped up on the side of my neck about 9 months later, repeating the same cycle. Had it removed, as well.

I’ve got another sprouted behind my jaw, beneath the ear that was originally affected.

I get a cystic type of acne that fill with similar fluid, but they ultimately go away, whereas the others set up shop.

Even after they get removed, I often experience inflammation and an itching sensation in the sites. They feel alive.

The brain fog worsens too.

Very strange.

Were yours anything like that?

Curious in the treatment. I’ve used all sorts of essential oils, even tinctures, to no luck. Never Lysine or olive leaf.

I’ve thought it could be owed to sluggish lymph and the fact that I should be more invested in a skin care protocol (exfoliation, et cetera). I eat a diet high in fats, and I’m Mexican. Greasy boi.

Though, I did not eat this way when the cysts started, so I can’t really say that’s the cause. Probably not the best, but other issues prevent me from changing.

I’ll shut up now.

Thank you for posting this

NQA I think what you are referencing may be swollen lymphs because of the locations you mentioned. I used to get these. They would be small and hard at first. I would attempt to assist in draining them with some pressure applied daily until it was ready to give and then clean the area.

The lipoma in my arm is as hard as a pea and I can tell it wont allow me to drain it this way.

The cyst is something altogether different which was spotted in my testicle when I went to get it checked out due to the pain.

Nothing had worked effectively in the past but Arganine would make it worse so I thought maybe this is virus related. It was a hunch that paid off.

I stopped Arganine and started Lysine. I feel the Lysine causing some discomfort directly in that spot but it didnt make it worse so I stuck with it and it kept improving with continued use.

Whatever they are, definitely not normal. Recurrent. Related to the infections. I’ve been told they’re not lymph nodes, after removal, multiple times now. I ask. But, who knows?

Get the ones that don’t drain, as well. Tough, unchanging, no drainage.

Got one in or on my epididymis, also. I was told it’s fluid-filled. Twins!

They’re all different.

Thanks for sharing

If you have an epididymal one I would definitely do the Lysine / Olive Leaf combo. Its the only thing that worked there.
