      No idea about the cysts but, I have had steroid injections (for the shoulder in my case) to excellent effect! Hopefully you have similar results!

      So sorry to hear this. I'm suffering from some minor back/sciatic issues myself so, I sympathise! I will keep my fingers crossed that they identify the cause and offer a quick solution! Hang in there.

      Good luck Grace. Hope they can identify a cause and offer a solution. My sciatic pain lasted 8 months then was gone one morning and hasn't been back for over two years. Knock on wood... Advil and stretching kept me from losing it.

      I 3rd the doctor suggestion. I had back issues years ago, turned out to 1 herniated and 2 bulging disks. I had a couple of cortisone shots in the back (along with losing my 30lb gut) and I've been fine ever since.

      Grace, I agree about a doctor. I had sever sciatica and went to a neurosurgeon. I needed surgery and it made 99% improvement. You should get checked out with an MRI and/or CAT scan. Make sure you are comfortable with the doctor and get a second opinion.

      I've ran it three times in the past. It goes right past my street so I go outside and cheer everyone on. Let me know if you do and I'll look for you.
