My breast hurt, expecially the left one. I am 27yrs. I've always had irregular periods all my life. I already got tested for pregnancy and I know is not that because my husband has been out of the state for 5months now...anyway, they have never hurt this much ever. They feel tingly and then like pinching needles. They are warm and tender. I do exercise and find that it made it worse so I stopped. I don't know what the problem is and I don't have any lumps or discharge. Please, help. I can't sleep or sit or lie down. Every position hurts. They feel like heavy bags of sand. Im 36c if that helps any. I'm not that big.
Person's Age: 27
Pregnancy test was negative. Advil does not help. I stopped working out.
Greetings,How long the symptoms are there? How frequently do you feel it? How are your last few cycles? Is there any other symptom? Is there any other significant past illness?Regards.
The pain has been going on for a few days, four maybe. I feel it all the time. The tingly feeling is there all the time, especially when I sit down. The needles pinching feeling only happens when I've caused them stress by walking or leaning or something. Two months ago, I had this exact thing happen to me and it went away but before it went away it got so bad, I couldnt sleep or stay still. The pain was beyond ten and constant. I went to a clinic and they gave me cephalexin and naproxen. I took the pills and it did go away, though the bacteria medicine gave me a yeast infection. That all happened in april and then in june I got strep throat and scarlet fever. My skin was still peeling after two weeks of it. And now I have this breast pain thing again, which hasn't happened since april and before that it had never happened in my life. I do have irregular menstrual cycles. Some times I can go half a year without a single period and that has always been the case. I used to be anemic before I had my son. I was underweight then. I'm good now. I'm 5'4, 27yrs, 140lbs now.
Thank you for the input,Pain in breast & tenderness can occur due to a few factors. It can be due to hormonal changes. As you have irregular period, hormonal imbalance is more possible. In some cases there can be inflammation. As the pain is more, you can try with motrin or naproxen. I would advise to get it examined by doctor again. If doctor thinks necessary, he can advise a mammogram after examination.If you have any query, please feel free to ask. Please rate my answer as EXCELLENT / GOOD SERVICE when you are satisfied. If you think poor or bad service, then please continue conversation by using REPLY button without rating the answer. This will help me to explain further & satisfy you. Regards.
Why you did not have such symptoms before, it is difficult to comment. Environmental change can be a factor. Hormonal change can cause cyclical breast pain which occur with every menstrual cycle. As you do not have regular period, hormonal imbalance can be a factor. It can occur due to non cyclical breast pain where no cause is detected. However, a mammogram, ultrasound can be taken to rule out any fibrocystic disease or fibroadenoma, tumor etc.. When it is a new symptom, it should be checked to know the precise cause.Dr. SS41106.2971506597
Hi, again (sorry, I keep bothering you)
You should get an appointment with gynecologist. Gynecologist can do an assessment. Low thyroid hormone can cause weight gain, excessive sleepiness. If you have not been checked it out recently, you can have test for it. Excessive sleeping, and eating without enough loss of calori like less movement, not going outside, can produce weight gain too. Walking is a good exercise to loose weight and to be active. Hormone tests can be done to know the exact level whether any further treatment will be required. Sometimes oral contraceptive pills are used to regulate the hormonal imbalance. After all the tests, doctor can suggest oral contraceptive pills. Mammogram can help to rule out breast pathology.
Hi, Dr. SS (this is the last one)
Hormonal imbalance can be the most probable cause. Oral contraceptives can help in this situation. If it is infection, it could be severe by this time. Muscle pain can be helped by taking motrin or naproxen. You can try with it till you see doctor. But other causes should be ruled out by having an examination by doctor.
Hi, Dr. SS (sorry, this one is really the last)
You have taken cephalexin. If it is infection, at that time, the symptoms can be less, but it did not. If the chronic infection persists, there can be other symptoms like fever, redness, pus discharge etc. You can go to a free clinic for a preliminary assessment. A mammogram should be taken. If the doctor thinks, he can advise you to take oral contraceptive pills without further testing.
