Prob not the cyst: Unless the cyst is very big (more than 5 - 10 cm), it is unlikely to be related to the pain. Need more information, so please see your doctor, including follow up for the right ovary if necessary. The symptoms could relate to arthritis in the lumbar spine, or be related to sciatica (neural foraminal stenosis). Could be pulled muscle. Consider lumbar spine MRI if no other cause is found.
