Post VERY bad breast pain.....

I am 42,with saline implants under muscle. I have a long history of fibrocystice breast disease. I have cut back on caffeine,take vitamin e name it I do it.I even had to mammos last year to rule out anything more going on than just the typical fibrocystic pain.Last one was in May. Now,my pain is just in left breast.It is a shooting pain,constant ache,burning sensation.IT really feels like it is musculoskeletatal related. I can touch the rib area and bone under breast and it is very painful.It sounds like a condition called Costochondritis. Is anyone familiar with this? It is said to make you think you have breast pain when it is actually in the cartilage.

Costochondritis is very painful and even worse upon deep respirations and increased activity involving chest muscles. I believe the only thing that is given by doctors for it is either a pain reliever or an anti inflammatory...I can't remember which. Talk to your doctor and see what they suggest! Good luck!!!
