popliteal cyst

Dr. Stoll,
I was diagnosed on April 10th thru MRI as having Baker's cyst. My primary symptom was tightness posterior upon flex of right knee. I'm 45, athletic, 6', 200lbs. After the reading of MRI, perscription was for cordizone shot into joint, naprosyn 500mg 2x/day, PT, ice and rest. Dr. advised, have patience it will go away. Subsequent to 4/10 appt I began having upper hip pain at very top of quadriceps in both legs. Pain in both knee and hips sometimes waking me up at night. Follow-up appt on 6/10, knee pain slightly worse. Dr. apprised the hip pain is caused by change in gait caused by knee pain. Dr. admin another cordizone injection directly into cyst. Pain reduced and range of flex increased for about one week. Today, 6/24, the pain has returned with a vengence, joint is swollen and extremely stiff in AM. Range of flex is limited and worse that on 4/10. Upper hips still sore. I'm seeking a second opinion and would appreciate your thoughts. Thank you. David Roth

Hi, Dave.

EVERYTHING you have mentioned are consequences of the simplistic, allopathic penchant for doing ANYTHING to suppress the symptoms without considering the causes.

Start with the archives about Baker's and then go to the bracing and the arthritis archives. See the glossary for any unfamiliar terms.

Let us know what you learn.

Walt
