Pain relief: I would recommend seeing an interventional pain specialist who may be able to aspirate or intentionally rupture what sounds like peri-neural cysts. At a minimum expanding of these cysts will determine whether they are causative or merely coincidental.

Perineural cysts: There are many cysts that can be seen on a MRI of spine. The only one that require treatment is a synovial cyst from the facet joints. A perineurial cyst is considered benign, and they are asymptomatic, so that it is unlikely that the finding will be the explanation for your back pain.
