Dr. Frederick Wolfe says:

Bakers cyst is a swelling of the lining of the knee joint that extends to the back of the knee. It is only rarely necessary to remove the cyst, and it is never tested for RA. The diagnosis of RA is made by blood tests and physical examination.

I can sprint, play soccer normally but only feel the pain at the back of the knee after a period of sitting more than 15 minutes on any chair. It looks just a little buffier than the other knee.

Why is it so difficut to find a cure? I'm on medication since I was 5 but with very few results, and the damage now is huge.
