My nipples are badly swollen and painful to the slightest touch; my breasts swollen as well. This has been going on 31/2 weeks now. It used to occur mildly just prior to my period for about a week. But the past year it's gotten much worse. Right now the pain is truly distressing! I'm 46, not pregnant, had my hormone levels checked, and nothing too serious except this. I'm too ashamed to tell my doctor; too afraid as it is so painful and my breasts are swollen by 2 cup sizes;left side larger than right .
I'm not pregnant, not sexually active, recently had my period during which the pain and swelling went down a slightly for a few days.
This can not be normal!!
Any advice?????
Thank you.
