Muscle spasm: This is probably related to muscle spasms but ovarian cysts can be a reason for discomfort as well. It is difficult to tell without an examination by a qualified medical provider. It is unlikely to be serious in a young health individual. You can get some relief with non steroidal anti-inflammatory medications such as Motrin or aleve (naproxen) that can be purchased over the counter.
