Breast pain Treatment?

Jun 10, 2016 4:01 PM

My breasts are in so much pain. It goes up and down, but I want to ask if anybody knows some remedies. What's your advice/experience?
I'm wanting a breast massage but don't know how to go about it. (Don't have a partner. I have a boyfriend but we're waiting for marriage).

Have you seen a doctor to make sure it's nothing going on that needs medical attention? Are you taking birth control pills? When I used them I kept painful breasts. High caffeine intake also aggravated mine. Now I'm developing fibrosis type cysts (54 yr) and it's can make it painful. I'm sorry I can't give suggestions other than warm moist heat. Hugs& prayers you can get suggestions from others to help. 🙂💕🙏🌼

If it is fibro cystic you can take vitamin e, vitamin B complex (with b-12) and most importantly no caffeine. Lots of water helps but caffeine is the biggie. Typically fibro cystic breast issues are not anything to worry about they just cycle with your cycle and are annoying. Always best to be checked out by your gyno to be certain.

Thanks so much. Yeah, I actually almost never take caffeine. But I'm glad to know that it's not just my doctor saying that.

One of the most common side effects I will get is breast pain. I have gotten it from various medications and hormone related ( mine or synthetic). It's usually starts in left boob. Can get excruciatingly painful. I have a fabulous massage therapist that will massage around my boobs and arm pit area. For me it helps lots. A wheat microwave heating pad helps greatly. Usually once my period passes it decreases. If it is medication related stopping the drug and usually within the week the pain goes away.

Didn't know about caffeine intake could cause this problem.
Thanks, Beets
