I have been going through some intense pain lately. That is part of the reason why I haven't been here. It is real embarrassing. I am a man and my breast hurt so bad. The top of the breast turn slightly cold and the nipple turns real cold. The tip of the nipple turns bright white. It hurts like a six or seven on the pain scale. The pain radiates across my chest. I am doing something that I am sure my doctor would not want me to do. I am cutting up my lidocaine patches into one inch squares and covering the nipple and it takes the pain down to a three. I told my doctor and endocronologist about it and I don't think they appreciated the severity of it. They just told me it was ok. They didn't realize that I wasn't o.k. I hope they can help me soon. I haven't been on here because it hurts my chest to move my arms when I type. I hope you all have been getting along. I have missed you all.
