    Default Do you have breast pain (mastalgia) when premenstrual and what does it feel like?

    In the last year or so since having my IUD out I have been suffering from awful breast pain. It's horrendus. Taking my bra off feels like my breasts are so heavy they are filled with concrete and the pain shoots from my upper breasts all the way up to my armpit.

    Anyway, after a test and a few other appointments it seems it is just cyclical with my menstrual cycle and I'm hating it. DS hugged me the other day and it was agonising!

    How do you help relieve the pain? I know I need to cut my caffeine and relax more, maybe grab some evening primrose oil but is there anything else women can do when the pain is high?

    Only since having my third child have I had this problem, 14 out of 28 days . I don't know what to do ... I'm honestly a grumpy mummy and feel very down during that time.

    I'll be watching your thread for ideas as well.

    RaryGirl, I can't even imagine how that must feel. I have it for about 4-5 days and by the end I'm just about ready to snap. I did read in my little printout from the GP that some women get it for 14 days and I want to cry for them!

    Buy some iodized salt tomorrow and it seems to work within a few days permanently. Very highly recommend it

    I have the same thing as RaryGirl It's extremely painful. I use iodised salt but I've never noticed a difference?

    I'm thinking of going to the GP to have my hormone levels tested to see if something is out of whack.
