Hi.....I have had the same problem on and off. I am in my early 40s and have realised this is happening due to hormonal imbalance.....especially when my Progesterone levels go low in the second half of the month after my periods. This can only be verified and treated by a doctor.

It is really unfortunate. It is a fibrocystic condition that can be caused by fluctuating hormones. I was plagued with this condition at the time of puberty at the age of eleven and just thought that it was due breast development and it was normal. However, as it continued for several years, I seeked the advice of a physician in my later teens. Many tests were run with no real conclusion except that my breasts had vast amounts of cysts and several medications were tried to help the debilitating severe that I could not even walk across the floor without basically restricted/ruined everything in my life. I did not have relief until I had my TAH in 2008 which was 40 years later. Good luck, ladies. I do hope they have some new developments for this condition.
