How many of you have experienced that twinging pain in your boobs or even sore/tender breasts when you twirl or even when you are just lying down on your bed? A lot of times, right!
We have the exact reasons why this happens and you need to take care of a lot of things. Not to be scared, of course, but these facts will help you out a lot in the problem.
Boob problems are quite common and you can relate it directly to PMSing or even bra issues. Be it whatever, the question still remains: Why this happens? When can you ignore it? Should you ignore it? When should you consult a doctor?
Read on along to know what kind of breast pain are you going through and what you should do to cure it?
Hormone level change is the most common reason why your breasts feel sore and tender. The rise in estrogen and progesterone in your blood before your period causes your breasts to swell and grow tender. While using the Primrose oil can help you get relief from the soreness.
The bad fitting bra does not only ruin your entire outfit, but it also leaves your breasts in an uncomfortable situation. If your bra is too small, it will squish your breasts and the underwire will irritate you by poking you. If on the other hand, you are wearing a bra larger to what your cup size is, it might not be providing you the correct support. So, choose your bra carefully!
Medicines that alter your hormone levels are for sure a reason that makes your breast hurt you. Although birth control pills will stabilize your hormones, and your boobs feel tender. Additionally, antidepressants might also be a reason to tender boobs.
Having fluid-filled cysts in your breasts or the breast tissue. And if you are PMSing, these lumps tend to hurt more and cause sore breasts. In this case, you need to get yourself checked by a doctor and get a medical prescription.
You have pectoral muscles that are situated right under your breasts and while you exercise, you tend to use these muscles. It happens if you change your routine or have just started exercising. It may also happen if you lift heavy objects using these muscles. You can take care of this pain by using a heating pad or painkillers that are prescribed by your doctor.
Costochondritis is a type of breast pain that never happens because of hormones. It basically happens if you have an inflammation in the junction where the breastbone and rib cage meet. Although a major reason for this is the aging. And it can also be caused by incorrect posture.
