For the last couple of nights, I've had these spells of pain that last one to two hours. It is like a radiating pain that starts in my breasts and goes down below them a few inches. At first I thought it was a horrible new form of heartburn, but then why would my breasts feel tender at the same ... time? They feel tender, and heavy. It also feels worse when I lay down, especially on my side, and definitely when I lay on my stomach. What seems to help is ibuprofen and massaging my sides and underneath my breasts.
The only reason why I think the pain has something to do with my breasts is that last night I remember that I had the same kind of pain for a couple of days… almost exactly a month ago. And I'm about to start my period. So maybe it has to do with my cycle. It also didn't start until I got new bras and stuff. The first time I had an episode like this, I was wearing a bra, and I thought maybe the band was too tight. However yesterday when it woke me up in the middle of the night, I hadn't been wearing a bra for hours.
If it continues I'll probably get it checked out by my GP, if it continues. It sucks and it's actually kind of scary and disruptive, because I don't know why it's happening and all I can do is wish the pain away until the ibuprofen or whatever kicks in. I'm just wondering if this has happened to anyone else
