I suggest you go in for a surgery

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for posting on XXXXXXX

From your description, it seems to be evident that your ovarian cyst is causing a problem and the best possible option for you (if I was to handle you as my patient) is a laporatomy (open abdomen surgery) or laparoscopic surgery which will help reposition your ovaries and also remove the painful cyst. Draining the cyst is not advised as recurrence rate is high.
You will need to XXXXXXX a gynobs face to face and get available options. I am afraid that pain killers will not help unless the cause is corrected.
You are still young and still in reproductive age group and the best possible option should be taken as soon as possible.

Hope this helps and wish you the best.
