Do you have achy boobs?

Before anyone comments, yes I will ask my Dr, I know you are not professionals, I'm just wondering if it's common!

Recently (last month or so?) I've had very achy boobs. I do remember having it at points in the past, but not how I fixed it. I did have lumps about 10-12yrs ago, scans and biopsy showed harmless (layman's terms by Dr was breast mice).

I can't feel any new lumps. Things feel fairly normal, although I wondered if a bit thicker (but I am a worrier). I just found today when DAD cuddled up and put her head on the side of me it really hurt the side of my breast, and I wasn't sure if that's just normal!

No other symptoms, very tired (always), a bit achy at times, otherwise normal (whatever normal is!).

On pill - not pregnant (get that out there now!)

DAD = DD (age 3). Or that would be weird!

Yes I do. Mostly in the left one. It's kind of a throbbing ache. I have been to the gp she said mine was mastalgia? Which is a nothing diagnosi of pain in boob! She says it's common at my age (42) but I think I was about 38 or so when I went to ask about it

You could be pregnant though as no contraception method is 100% effective. Just saying.

Wrongly fitting bra?

Get it checked out if you’re worried. I did and have found great relief since taking a high strength evening primrose oil and starflower oil. Look for the GLA levels in the ones you buy. The higher the better.

I often get this. Sometimes it is before I get my period. Sometimes I can't find any reason for it but my breasts feel heavy and achy. My legs often feel the same.

Evening primrose oil, and completely sorting my diet out really worked for me.
