I am having pain...

I am having pain in my right breast that is going to my right side of my back and my doctor said nothing is wrong. this pain really hurts an I don't know where else to go. I first thought it was my back now I think differently. I take aleve first thing every morning and it helps some but always comes back. Sowhere do I go from here?

Doctor's Assistant: Have you had any recent injuries? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

No injuries and the only thing that helps is aleve

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I have told them every thing I am aware of. Maybe a mammagram??

I am sorry for your significant pain and your doctor should address it immediately.

Your pain may be due to;

1) Pinched nerves in spine which also causes back pain and breast pain.

2) Mastalgia; which is a breast tissue inflammation.

3) Both of above.

You need following investigations for the evaluation and confirmation of the diagnosis:

a) MRI of neck and mid back spine.

b) Mammography and ultrasound of the breast.

Chest wall conditions, like Tietzie syndrome, may present as mastalgia. Please read abut it;

http://www.medicinenet.com/costochondritis_and_tietze_syndrome/article.htm

Lisuride maleate is a new agent recently studied for the treatment of mastalgia. Vitamin E and evening primrose oil also can help you.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.

calling today for a mammogram since my dr said nothing is wrong but I dont understand why my back hurts too,only on the right side

A chest cage issue or a mid back issue can explain pain in breasts and back.

Investigations can give the diagnosis.

Physical exam clues too are important specifically tenderness in a particular area, will indicate myofascial trigger point which responds to physical therapy and deep electrotherapy.

Was this information helpful to you? I would be glad to answer any further questions.
