Is there an alternative to breast reduction for the pain in shoulders and breast?

Last year around November i had a terreble chest pain on my left side, i couldn t breath properly and i was taken to the nearest hospital for a check up. The pain kept on coming and going . All Tests were done and all came clear. i even did an exray the next morning and it was also clear. Then my Doctor thought that the only explanation will be my Large Breasts and suggested that i go for an Operation because they also give me back pain my shoulders are always painfull, besides i have been doing a researches regarding this Breast Reduction. My Question is can i go through with this Breast Reduction or is there any other explanation to the chest pain i had? it wasn t for the first time i had this problem.

you should be investigated for high blood pressure, also get an E.C.G. done along with cardiac stress test. Also get an upper G.i. endoscopy done to rule out acid peptic disease. Large breasts does not cause such pains. Do not go for breast reduction surgery. Do a self examination of your breasts in kneeling position for any painful lumps.
