Ladies...

6 posts in this topic

I had a good looking mammogram and sonogram. So I am relieved about that but I have breast pains that have been persisting for months - maybe even a year - I am bad at guesstimating as well as writing the onset of these things down.

 

All I can think is sclero-related? Collagen found a new hangout? Anyone else experience tender spots, aching, tingling (almost like lactation let down) and sharp shooting pains? Also sometimes feels like swelling.

 

Is this a part of menopause?

 

Thanks for your input!


Take care,

Barefut

Hi barefut,

 

I have recently had so much numbness and tingling in my arms and legs. I am at that age of menopause and there are all sorts of weird things going on. Some women have it worse that others and I guess I am one of those women because I am having a very hard time going through change. Well just thought I would add my two cents.

Hope all is well with you.:emoticon-hug:

 

Sincerely,

Hello Barefut

 

Sorry I don't have any ideas not having this problem. What a relief that there is no sinister reason behind it.

 

Take care.

Hi barefut

 

yes, it could be a mixture of sclero, but I am no doctor. I would tend to go down the menopause route as my chest gets very bothersome! :(

 

I'm 53 in March and my left breast is more tender/larger and "tingly" than my right one, but as long as your mammogram like mine is normal, then it's probably all par for the course on top of everything else! Some women fly through the menopause, others don't.

 

let us know how you get on

hugs

Hi Barfut

 

What excellent news that your mammogram and sonagram results were good; you must feel very relieved about that!! :VeryHappy:

 

I'm afraid I can't really advise you as I shot through the menopause like an express train and was fortunate not to suffer any problems at all. :emoticons-yes:

 

Do let us know how you get on.

Very interesting. I've been having breast pain for the past few months. So last Thursday I went in for a mammo. They found a "spot" and had me immediately see a doctor. He asked me a lot of questions, then sent me into the room for a few more films. Then he came in talked some more, and sent me into another room for an ultrasound, and then they couldn't find the "spot". They brushed it off as "must have just been breast tissue", and told me to return in one year for another routine mammo. I'm thinking. NOPE. I am going to pay for one myself in a few months. Seemed quite odd. Although I do have a tremendous amount of back/muscle pain and it's is really bad right now, which in turn can call a lot of muscles (breasts) to hurt. Who knows, it's all so hard to figure out.


Warm and gentle hugs,
