    I found pain was worse when I was upright and walking around, lying on sofa or propped on pillows in bed eased my pain with painkillers still, but not good long term obviously. And did not completely go away until I had cysts removed

    cocodamol helped.

    did they tell you how large cyst was? If over a certain size they will remove but like to wait and see if it resolves by itself first.

    Solpadene max is good if you're ok with taking codeine. If not talk to your gp and request some tramadol. That's what I'm taking and it does make you sleepy but it's a wonderful painkiller x
