Welcome to JustAnswer, It will be a pleasure to try and help with your concerns.
A Bakers cyst generally causes swelling, knee pain and stiffness behind the knee.
The burning sensation can be from a pinched nerve or nerve inflammation that can occur with Vitamin B complex deficiency or possibly a diabetic nerve damage ( diabetic neuropathy ).
You can try resting with your knee slightly flexed ( bent ) by placing a pillow under it, that should relieve some tension and relieve some degree of soreness.
Other than this, taking Tab. Neurobion Forte ( vitamin B complex supplement ) taken once a day would help with a possible nerve inflammation.
