breast pain..

Hi, I do notice that a common symptom of peri is sore breasts. I wondering if any of you feel a discomfort (feels like lymph node bruisy feeling) in the tail of the breast towards the underarm. I have had this on and off and it does not seem to be cyclical (but who knows what that is anymore). I have had this even after finishing menstruation. I notice that after sleeping (lying down) that after getting up there is more discomfort like the breasts have filled and feel bruisy in this area ,sometimes have a strange tingling (like let down when nursing) . This is soo strange and sorta worries me. Please let me know what you think...Thanks Les

Re: breast pain..

hi there
yes i have this constantly, my breasts feel really lumpy and sore and huge
sometimes it is painfull to lay down and if i accidentally knock them, boy do i know about it
just make sure you have checked them out for lumps and if you are worried about it get a nurse or doctor to check it out for you
hope this helps

Re: breast pain..

Thanks Chilli....this is strange lumpy as it is not necessarily the breast but at the side , what they call the tail of the breast sorta of into under the arm. Do you have it there too? I have one spot I can touch that really is tender like I said, it feels like a lymph node. Do you have the pain even when it has nothing to do with pms? Sorry for soooo many questions. Lesley

Besides Being Checked, Start Taking Vitamin E. I Have Always Had Breast Tenderness, It Is Worse With The Peri-meno Kicking In, My Doc Told Me To Take E, It Works

Re: breast pain..

oh those sore breasts are soooo much fun. I do get that tingling like lactation quite often. Don't have lumps as such, although if you feel the part where it is fleshy it can feel quite sinewy. One trick to try is feel both sides and if they feel the same you are probably fine. But for peace of mind get your Dr to give you a thorough breast examination. For about 3 - 4years I've had almost constant pain in my breasts, especially the left one. During last year (I'm 51) they got worse and worse, and lying down was extremely painful. I'd ahve to put my arm underneath them to try and protect them. The pains have decreased dramatically over the past 6 mths since my periods started to lessen, (except last month which was revolting!) So I am hoping for better things.

Re: breast pain..

I am in the throes of this terrible pain right now. Left breast only, concentrated near the nipple. Clean mammo in July. Am worried about breast cancer of course. It is reassuring to hear other people who can't brush up against things without pain. Saw specialist last April for same thing but it went away for several months after that. Sorry we're all in this predicament.
