    I have off and on pain in one kidney. After an ultra sound scan to check breasts after a qestionable mammagram they said I had cysts in my right kidney. I'm not sure if this is related to polycystitis or something much less. But, I realy would like to know if anyone else has this and what they've done...diet, treatment, etc. I know the cysts can spontaneously burst or something but I really wonder if this is a problem for anyone else. I have no insurance and am self-employed so I have to keep going. Just don't want to eat, drink or otherwise injest anything to worsen the condition. Also, I'm curious to know what everyone has in addition to fibro...things not listed in the usual books....perhaps common threads. Also, would you consider yourself calm, high strung, easy going, a pain the the butt....what personality? Thanks!!! I'm an extroverted attention deficit disordered anxiety prone bundle of energy....until I crash. I like to tell people I run and I run and I run.....and then I fall down and it takes awhile to get up again and back on track. When I'm tired...keep away..I'd kill for sleep.

    Hi I have 2 cysts in my left kidney. I was diagnosed about 10 years ago by a doctor who was a cfids specialist. She no longer practices. My loss, she was a great doctor. Anyhow, she said that lots of people have this and most don't even know about it until they have a cat scan usually for something else. She said if it doesn't bother you don't worry about it. I've got so many other disease symptoms that I just can't worry about the cysts. ANyhow. they are usually not harmful. Jess
