Maybe the ganglion cyst is the effect and not the cause of pain in the wrist. I mean the effect of a problematic arthrosis for example in the wrist, from repetitive strain as in the calpal syndrome. I drained mine again before some weeks in order to relieve pressure from the irritated nerve, and even though it became flat somedays the nerve is still irritated and I feel my hand weak and with limited motion. So I am about to start these exercises and stretches from the book advised in the carpal syndrome topic:

I had a ganglion cyst on my wrist for a number of years. It was a little smaller than the size of a pea. Well, I just realized it is completely gone! Since being consistent with the borax protocol healed my trigger thumb in 4 months last summer and early fall, I'm guessing borax also was the key remedy that shrank my ganglion cyst. Wow. A doctor had told me it would never go away in 2018. Tried all the remedies mentioned on Earth Clinic for a ganglion cyst, and none helped at all. Amazing.
Here is a pic of what my ganglion cyst looked like. Mine was about 1/3 the size of this woman's cyst, so you get an idea of how much it shrank!
