Question: Aching breasts & lower abdo pain

 lush84 - Wed Jan 28, 2009 8:15 am

I have had sore nipples for 2 weeks now, and now my breasts have started achin with like a burning sensation too. This has been constant for a few days now.

I have also been having pains in my lower abdomen. When asleep in bed, if i turn over I sometimes get an intense cramp sensation, I also get it when I stand up sometimes. This has been happening for just over a week.

Please help!!

User avatar Hello,
Most often these symptoms are related to your cycle and the fluctuating hormones. If you find it is still present after your next cycle, it would be wise to talk to your health care provider and a physical exam may be in order. If it's hormonal fluctuation, it will probably subside and is nothing to worry about.

Best wishes.
