Discussions that mention ibuprofen

Cancer: Breast board


Hi Ladies,

I have this also and the pain/soreness seems to come and go. For a while I took alot of ibuprofen (for me that works better than tylenol). They say to cut back on caffine, but I'm a heavy cofee drinker, so that's difficult for me.

I did take evening primrose oil (per my gyn) - it didn't seem to help much.
For a long time I slept with a sports bra on and this helped alot during the night.
Right now I'm starting to go thru menopause, and the breasts are feeling alot better. It seems that the worst time I've had with this was from age 45 - 49. I'm now 50 - and starting to get the hot flash issues - so unfortunatley it's always something.
