Question Anyone else have cysts at the joints in the back

My MRI showed that I have arthritis in my back. I'm 32. It showed that cysts have formed at the joints. Does anyone else have this? The dr did not tell me specifically what kind of arthritis I have and I didn't think to ask. I was too blown away by the diagnosis. Also if you have these cysts, what type of arthritis do you have?
Thanks!

Re: Anyone else have cysts at the joints in the back

Cysts in the joints of your back? Or in the back of your fingers? Sorry.. I didn't understand what you meant? (I guess you would mean between the discs of the spine? I'm not up on my back anatomy).

(I have these weird nodes forming in the backs of my fingers, .. a few of them anyway. I have no idea what they are.. they're small still, but white, just under the surface, and visible enough if my fingers are straight.)


Do they cause you a lot of pain?

I have a cyst at the back of my neck..and I have ankylosing spondylitis. The doctor told me nothing to worry about...as long as it doesn't change shape.

I have a cyst on my hip joint and i got a ct scan for it. I won't know anything for about a week or two what it is.

Re: Anyone else have cysts at the joints in the back

When I had facet joint injections, my PM Dr. said I have a cyst in my facet joint...I think the arthritis causes them to form...blocks the drains in the joint, and cyst forms... I don't know what happens...if they go away or what...
A friend had one in her lower spine, and they had to do surgery to remove it...Mine is small...but considering the area, I would think, anything could cause a problem..Guess their theory is if it doesn't cause pain, leave it alone.

My rhuematologist said I had a cyst behind my knee. He called it a Bakers Cyst. I have psoriatic arthritis.
