Truer words have never been spoken. I know it is informative to automatically try to find something similar to read about on the Internet when we have a problem, but honestly, you will find yourself in just about every set of symptoms there are out there. Consult with your doctor and if necessary, have him refer you to a specialist.
I had a ganglion cyst removed from my left wrist many years ago ... it was causing me pain and I could no longer use my left hand as I should. My surgeon tried to needle-aspirate the cyst but it came back within two weeks, so I had it removed. I have had no lasting or permanant damage from the cyst or the removal procedure.
