My year long bout with myxoid cysts came to an end when I started taking a combination of Fish Oil (1200 mg) and Vitamin D-3 (2000 IU). Here's the story.
I had suffered with this ailment for about a year and all the information I found on the internet indicated that no one was exactly sure what their cause. Some sites said that it was an onset condition to arthritis. Other sites said something about dead tissue from an old injury.
My cysts only became painful when they had swollen so much that they look like they were about to burst. I talked to my doctor about it and all he could recommend was to lance it for me.
Just by coincidence I was looking researching Vitamin D-3 because at 55 years of age there was good benefits to taking it. I just happen to be at Sam's Wholesale and noticed a bottle of vitamin D-3, but it had fish oil with it. I figured that it was better than nothing so I bought it. The bottle said take one a day, so that is what I did.
Two days after I started taking this formula, I noticed that the myxoid cyst (that was about to get big enough to lance) had shrunk up a little like a raisin. I kept take the vitamin formula and about two weeks later, the cysts were gone. Is it a coincidence? It has been six months and I still don't have any recurrences. These things use to "bloom" on my left finger every three weeks or so after I got them lanced. There was another one that looked like it was starting to grow on my right hand (both were index fingers) I just wonder if anyone else has had similar experience. This might be something that doctors don't know about.
I am retired and I don't work for anyone (in case you're wondering) Here is the exact formula that I bought from Sam's. Maybe some doctor can look into this:
Simply Right (Wellness & Nutrition) all natural enteric; fish oil (1200 mg) + Vitamin D-3 (2000 IU); (Double Omega 3 strength).
You might try some other equivalent brand that might work. And I don't know whether it was the fish oil or the vitamin D-3, or both.
