    Hi have you had a operation ?

    I found that the muscles in my hip area, thigh, and calf were in knots.  Some muscles felt like small baseballs when massaged.  It takes nearly continuous massaging to keep them from causing great pain.  Could this be some of your problem?

    Hi, there have been a few discussions re lumps and Baker's cysts on these forums recently. I've replied to a few of them, so I suggest you look up Baker's cysts (always caused by arthritis) on the right hand side of this page under "Related Information". At least that will give you an idea of what they're like. But your doc will hopefully know what the problem is and how to help you.

    Best of luck & let us know how you get on.
