I have been having cysts found throughout my body (ovaries, brain, maxillary sinus, acne,...) Does this have anything to do with Lyme Disease? Is there anything I can do to stop this? Anyone else have this?

Can't really say as your LLMD should be consulted regarding this matter. Lyme does change a great deal in the whole body, especially the endocrine system.

Lyme also causes lots of inflammation - both connected to and separate from lymph system stagnation.

Gentle exercise, warm (not hot) baths, and massage can help with lymph. If you have a mini-trampoline, GENTLY bouncing helps move lymph.

As for the borrelia cysts, you would likely not feel those but there are some as you describe (Baker's cysts) that can be more common with lyme patients.

Your LLMD should be consulted for how to treat lyme cysts.

Could be from the inflammation as Keebler said.

Great question. I would love to hear more responses from others. I just had two aspirated from my breast that were 2.5 cm that appeared out of nowhere.

Now I have another one on the other that was not there three weeks ago when I had the procedure done. Has anyone else experienced this?

I have a small cyst in one of my breasts. They check to make sure it's not changing or growing when they do my mammograms. It's been there for a few years now.

I also have a couple of small cysts in my liver. The doctor tells me it's fairly common and nothing to worry about. Still don't like the idea of them being there.

Now I'm wondering if my lyme has anything to do these.
