I finally got some kind of answer on my ankle with an MRI.
"There is an ossicle at the lateral margin of the calcaneocuboid
articulation which measures 8 x 3 mm in size which is
partially extending into the extensor digitorum muscle at
the margin of the calcaneocuboid articulation."
"Impression: Accessory ossicle versus sequela of old trauma
at the lateral calcaneocuboid articulation. Minimal
degenerative change of the calcaneocuboid articulation is
also appreciated. There is mild edema in the extensor
As for my other symptoms, lyme came back negative, lupus negative, they are thinking fibromyalgia.
From what I see in my body is that my ligaments are so loose that my bones aren't staying in proper alignment and clipping off of eachother in painful ways.
Thank you for the clarification, my previous thinking was that your have had both a ganglion cyst and nearby an [accessory ossicle, or, hetertopic bone formation]. In either case, I now understand that what we were previously referring to as a ganglion cyst was the bone, and the nearby pain may have been inflamed tissue.
I hope your pain gets better and the surgery goes well with a quick recovery if you choose to have it.
Thank you for the update and best wishes,
