Fibrocystic Breasts Hurt All Month...Is This Normal?

I have been diagnosed with fibrocystic breast disease/condition. (I am 30 years old) For the longest time I was worried about cardio problems because my chest was always hurting. Finally the doc diagnosed FBC which explains the discomfort.

I heard that this condition hurts around PMS time, but mine are sore all month long. They do get substantially worse during PMS week but I can feel the soreness all the time.

Is this normal? Should I be worried or is this harmless (although unpleasant)

The doc says to try Evening Primrose Oil. I'm researching this (I have health anxiety and am a bit neurotic about health issues) to see if I can safely use this with my other medicines (Xanax and Celexa)

Thanks!

Angela

Do you use caffeine? It can make them sore also. I had to quit all caffeine - even chocolate.

I do have two cups of coffee each morning. Maybe I will taper off caffeine and see if that helps.

Question Flibrocystic Breasts

These symptoms sort of describe me. I get pain in breasts about a week before my period but sometimes they just hurt when it's really cold, and my breasts are cold to the touch and my nipples get very sore. I found that if I take an SAID like Ibuprofen the pain goes away.

I have severe cystic acne kiloid scaring on both breasts as well, which also can be very painful.

I discovered a a lump on my left breast which I think may be a cyst. It's not like my kiloids, its soft tissue kind of pale my kiloids are hard and much pinker.

I have an appointment tomorrow, I asked to be tested for PCOS, and to have my lump checked, I'm a little scared though.
