I am sorry that you are in pain. Watch out for signs of shingles. I too had breast pain and blister began to form and a break out soon followed. I had chicken pocks as a child. I just turned 53 years old and was not offered the shingles vaccine when I went to the doctors for my symptom's because insurance does not pay unless you are 60. I wish I had treated myself to the vaccine since both of my sisters within weeks of each other came down with painful shingles. My outbreak happen four weeks after my initial breast pain. Take care.
