You certainly need a nephrologist for your kidney problems.  The fact that you have a kidney cyst strongly suggests that you might also have nephritis from a kidney infection.  Because of your other signs/symptoms this could be a systemic infection.  Sometimes these are difficult to pin down, and most physicians essentially give up trying to find a cause, if an immediate cause can't be found.  If nothing infectious can be easily found in the biopsy, your physician should consider a number of stealth infections (viral and bacterial) that often go undetected but can cause systemic signs and symptoms.
