I could walk straighten my leg out, I finished those pills Thursday moring, and when I woke up yesterday my leg was stiff again from my knee . What else can I take with taking Mobic for pain. I have kept it rested today with an ice pack

Thanks for writing to us.
The pain in the leg with a diagnosed cyst is likely to be due to an infection in the cyst. If the symptoms have returned after finishing the steroids then surgical removal of the cyst should be considered.
