Is it normal to have leg pain due to ovarian cyst?

i found out about 6 months ago that i have ovarian cysts . I never associated the two but every month after my period i have horrible pain in my tail bone along with the cycts and numbing pain down my legs.. It is fine sitting down but when i stand up it is very painful. I also get the numbing pain down my legs i assume from the cysts is this normal?

Thanks for writing to us.
The pain in your tail bone with numbness in the legs is likely to be related to a nerve root compression at the level of coccyx. An MRI of the sacrococcygeal spine will help in confirming the diagnosis. This pain is not likely to be related to the polycystic ovaries.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
