Possible Cyst and Aches

I have had a swelling behind my left knee since March that hasn't subsided. I have been to a physio a numerous occasions with little success, if any. She thinks is may be a Bakers Cyst. On top of that I have aches everywhere. My legs, groin, ribs, shoulder blades, arms, neck. Everything just doesn't feel right. I visited my GP 2 weeks ago who is going to refer me to a orthopedic surgeon to have a better look at what is going on behind my knee. In the mean time I wanted to know what you thought?

The Baker Cyst is a separate issue to your generalized aches aches and pains. You may need to see a Rhumatologist  if you can't explain them on the grounds of exercise or trauma.

The aches are still consistent. Not really any relief and quite fatigued. All I can think about is going back to bed. Still got a couple of weeks before I see the orthopedic surgeon. Definitely not feeling myself.
