What causes breast pain? - Online Doctor Chats
i have pain in my breast for last 2 months.
comes and goes
is it present all the time or only at particular times?
when does it happen?
happening for last 2 months, not particuler at time
How often do you get the pain?
lasts for 10 days a months..
and rest of the days it is mild..
does it get worse when your period is nearing?
is the pain in both breasts or is it one side?
yes i observer some swelling when period nears..
more on left side..
Okay, what about the pain?
does the pain also increase when period nears?
You never had this problem before 2 months?
it was there but not much..
i m afraid it is not breast cancer?
It is not breast cancer
cancer does not cause pain till very late stages
and if you have cancer, you will be able to feel a lump or mass in your breast
What you are experiencing is called Mastodyinia or cyclical pain in the breasts
this happens due to normal rise and fall of hormones
no lump, but swelling is there..
The swelling is only during the periods time right
that is absolutely normal
Many young women like yourself go through this cyclical breast pain
There are promising treatments for this condition
so pain will decrease after period, right?
that is generally how it is
the pain can persist for a few days
i also feel shortness in breathing..
since when is that?
and at what time of the day is the shortness of breathing more?
Do you feel short of breath in the day time or in the night?
that is when you are at work or when you are at home?
when i m at home.
Do you wear tight bras during the day?
after or before Lunch/dinner..
have you noticed anything else apart from shortness fo breath?
or giddiness or your heart beating faster? etc?
What are your working hours?
i m a housewife..
i feel like my chest is pressed when i breath..
I can understand
This shortness of breath needs to be evaluated further
A simple general physical examination will do
we have also visited heart spe. as well..
and if something is suspected on examining you then the doctor can advise you to go for a chest X-ray
he said it is due to gases..
nothing was detected in examination..
Where do you live?
Since how long have been living in Bangalore?
can u suggest something to get relive from gases?
last 2 years..
Since when have you noticed this breathing problem?
it happens during periods
Then I don't think it is because of gases...
whatever your doctor meant by that 'gases'..
I am not sure why your doctor said gases
it was normal 13
tested it last year
I would like you to get it checked again
and as for treatment
i mean which doctor
I mean, you need to get the hemoglobin level tested again
You can go to your family doctor
what should be the ideal level?
Which part of the city do you live in?
13 is normal
If you wish, you can consult me, I have my clinic in Koramangala 6th block
otherwise you can consult any MD internal medicine specialist (Physician)
for women, 12.5 to 15 is considered as normal
sure, shall i wait till period gets over it will come in another 3-4 days
You should probably consult a gynecologist for your breast pain
Yes, you can wait till your period is over
There are quite a few treatment options for breast pain
i m taking Ayurveda treatment, for irregularity in period..
for last 2 months
and as for your breathing difficulty, I think it is because of the breast tenderness during the priods
please stop the ayurveda treatments
We don't know what is there in these medicines
and recent studies have shown that many ayurvedic medicines contain heavy metals
these heavy metals will cause permanent damage to the kidneys and liver
Ayurvedic medicines don't undergo the necessary clinical trails like modern medicines
its mix of allopathy and Aurveda, we have tried atleat 4 allopathy doctors and did not get any results.
after we got very good result..
and there is no way of knowing exactly what is in the medicines
It is your health and your choice
Modern medicines should not be mixed with Ayurvedic medicines
I don't know what type of doctors you have been to
Ayurvedic doctors should not prescribe modern medicines
it is illegal to do so
anyways, I will leave it up to you
it is your health, you can do whatever you feel like
thanks a lot doctor..
apart from that, if you are taking some medicines, it is likely that these medicines are causing the breast enlargement
Remember, there are very good medicines for breast pain
and about the breathing difficulty, you can consult me immediately after your period is over
that is, if you feel the need to consult
otherwise, you can decide what you wish to do.
is there anything else I can help you with?
are you there?
Thanks for consulting me here
