Boob pain. (No, really) - September 27th 2011, 12:48 PM

Last night I lay down on my bed and got really sharp, stabbing, sudden pain in my chest. It's like.. right in the middle of the inside side of my left boob. And I know that sounds strange.

It's really painful. If I inhale too much (by taking a deep breath or gasping/yawning) or exhale too fast (by laughing or crying) then it really hurts. Otherwise, I can only notice it when I'm lying on my back or left side. And when I am lying down I struggle to breathe with it and it's the kind of sharp, constant, pain that brings tears to your eyes.

Does anyone have any idea what this is or what I can do about it? I'd really like to avoid doctors and such since they scare me. But if anyone's had this before, how did you get rid of it?

Is it near time for your period? I never had tender breasts until recently with my period. It's very similar to how you are explaining and the pains can come as early as a week ahead of your period and last a few days after your period stops.

Have you felt around your breast for any lumps? This is unlikely, but you may have developed a lump which could be causing you pain. If there is a lump you can feel it may just be something clogged in your breast as this is fairly common. You can't feel all lumps though, so you would need to see a doctor if this continues or gets worse.

Or, perhaps you are having growing pains.

Is there any discharge when you squeeze your nipple? This can be a few things causing pain and discharge.

Hope it goes away

I've had similar pains before, in the same place that hurt when I breathed or laughed but they went away and I rarely get them. If you get them quite often then maybe it would be worth getting it checked out but if not, then it could just be a random pain.

As Kelly said, you could check yourself for lumps which could be unlikely but it's always good to check just to make sure everything is okay.

I emailed mum about which painkiller would be best for it and she said to check for lumps too. But I can't say it's something I do often so there's no way I'd know if I had anything abnormal in there or not. I figured I'd wait a couple of days and if it's still as bad, I'll talk to my doctor about it. Meanwhile it's ibuprofen and hot water bottles I think.

You should start self breast exams. Just because you don't know what it should feel like right now doesn't mean you should never do it.

I thought the same thing but then I decided to just do it in case there was anything obvious. There was. My first breast exam I found a very large lump. Going to get a mammogram soon.

Anyways, the ibuprofen and hot water bottles sound like a good idea. Hopefully it will go away on its own.

Aw sounds horrible.
Last December I had an trip to the ER because we were doing gymnastics in P.E and I slipped and fell on my left arm. I guess I fell hard enough where I occasionally get sternum pain, mostly towards the left.
All I can say is use painkillers, seeing as you don't want to go to the doctor. But if the pain persists for the next 2-3 weeks you might want to have it checked out.

I get a lot of breast pain near my period. I would also consider that your breasts might be growing. When my breasts were growing, it was hard to concentrate, I was always in so much pain. Although I grew very fast in a short amount of time, but it is something to consider. Take pain killers, don't sleep on your stomach. And obviously, check for lumps as everybody else said, and after this, even if there is nothing there, keep feelin' um! Get to know your boobies so you can know if something is wrong.

Oh I get this sometimes, exactly the same - short, stabbing pain when I inhale deeply. I've had it happen over the last 5 years or so but never thought much of it. Maybe it is just growing pains?
Again, though, like the others have said, check yourself regularly and don't worry about not knowing what you're doing - just make sure there are no unusual lumps or bumps.
