What causes painful nipples?

Hi I m in my 50th year and for just over a week now I have had very painful nipples. My breasts hurt too if I move quickly or dance. I had a hysterectomy when I was 34 and a year later I had an overy removed due to a large cyst. I have never had any menopausal symptoms so I was wondering if this is one.
