    Before I was tested for Lyme disease I went to a neurosurgeon because my back was hurting so bad, and I was so tired of hearing fibromyalgia, I kept thinking there was something else and I was going to find it. I had an MRI of my back and the dr. said I had cysts in my back. At first he thought that one was laying on a nerve, but the radiologist disagreed with him, so that was that. I got nothing done, but at least I do know there are cysts there. I also have cysts in my breast on the same side. That side is the one that has troubled me the very most for all these years. Now, since I have been diagnosed with Lyme, I wonder if these are Lyme cysts. I am assuming they are. Anyone else have anything similar to this?
    Thanks so much,

    are extremely small and would not be picked up on an MRI.

    I think you can assume that your cysts are NOT Borellia cysts.

    Sometimes lymph nodes can become calcified and show up as cysts.
