Hi,
As you have bloody discharge from nipple you have to go for complete check up of your both breasts by your gynecologist and Mammography should be done as early as possible.

Hey thank you for being here to answer my questions. I have been having some symptoms lately, I had a child 7 months ago, but recently this week I have had some really weird symptoms. I ve had, a one day period, mucousy discharge for a few days, brown discharge, then I had breast milk in my nipples. I have the IUD. Do you think I am pregnant? I took a test it was negative, and lately I have been getting really bad dizzy spells and nausea. I have really bad teeth pain and tiredness. However I have been chewing my nails bloody, and cant sleep. So I am wondering what you think. Thank you :)~ A very concerned young mother

Long story short I met a guy with the same fetish as me and it has been absolutely amazing and I am experiencing things I never had. Tonight after sex I was playing with my nipples, which were of course dry like any other area of skin. After playing with them a little my right breast was suddenly wet. What the heck happened? Was it something from within the nipple/breast? If I had to guess I would have assumed it was some type of lubrication kinda your vagina when you get turned on...But I have never heard of breasts leaking/releasing any liquid when you are turned on..I am not pregnant but I was 13 weeks pregnant and miscarried 9 days ago... I know it isn t milk but could it be something else related to pregnancy or miscarrying? Or is it related to being turned on and the miscarriage happening recently is unrelated? Or is something potentially wrong? Thank you in advance my loves!

Hi,I have a unusual issue that causes muscle fatigue, general fatigue, and slightly elevated blood pressure. I have been to the E.R. once, and they checked my blood, but said everything came back perfect . I know the doctor said something about checking for sodium potassium and thyroid stuff. I don t know what else though. I ve had this issue for about 3 months now, and it started simply with slight weakness in my upper legs, then as the the day would progress, it would move into calfs, neck and shoulders, etc. Now, anytime I try and walk up stairs,my legs burn, I have out of breath, and it s just very uncomfortable.

I had a baby 18 months ago and previous to that suffered from Hyperthyroid due to a virus. I was suffering from significant tachycardia and excessive sweating at that time. RAI Uptake was done etc, Virus resolved rendering my thyroid now Hypoactive for the last 4 years. I am currently taking Synthroid 150mcg. I have been a runner my entire life however first trimester complications caused that to cease. I am not just getting back into it and training for a half marathon. I have noted that my heart rate even after 5 minutes of running is around 186 bpm. I went to my GP to have my TSH and T4 checked to be sure I wasn t over medicated. Everything was normal. His response to this high BPM was to add a Beta-blocker. I have leary of taking it because I have read it will greatly affect my performance while running. I also get a quivering type feeling here and there through out the day in my heart. I get extremely flush almost purple in my face when running. I m wondering if there could something significantly more wrong than the thyroid affect as my GP has mentioned. I asked for a stress test and he said I didn t need one. I am 34 years old, slightly overweight still from post-partum. no other medical conditions, no history of any previous medical conditions other than Gestational Induced Hypertension and ecclampsia which clearly has resolved and Gestational Diabetes which also resolved.
