  1. Sherri1964, I think it understandable why you've developed health anxiety, especially after the loss of your friend. I many of us start to worry when we have health issues. Have you considered having health anxiety therapy, since your concerns have gone on quite a while? Sherri1974, you were only took HRT on off for two years, It really not that long. (My mother took hrt to for ten years.) You've probably heard of Claire Week's 'Self Help for Your Nerves'. In the book the author reminds people to let time pass. If you've never read the book you probably can find a free pdf. When I had breast pain issues my GP told me to resist over-checking, as it can make the area tender. I hope it has all improved.
  2. My doctor said the more you check the area the more tender it gets. If you are anxious and worried you could be over-checking the area. I think it is the case of check it and then leave it alone for a month or a few weeks. Also check in the mirror their is no puckering or rash and then leave it alone. Anxiety can cause breast pain! The following has come from the UK's nhs site. Evening primrose oil is often recommended as a treatment for breast pain. A dose of 1-2gms of Evening Primrose oil each day for a period of 6 weeks is required before benefit can be assessed. Improvement in severity of cyclical and non-cyclical mastalgia is 58% and 38% respectively. EP oil could also be beneficial for peri symptoms. Of course, you've got to go with your gut instinct, but clearly you also have a health anxiety regarding this issue. Three days breast pain or tenderness is not long, but of course it can feel long when you are worried.
  3. Personally I would wait six weeks before getting it checked out. Mine took six weeks to go and I was worried. I was also told by the doctor that breast cancer does not normally show up as tenderness/discomfort.
  4. Sherri - how long have you had a sensation or tenderness in the nipple? If its is under six weeks then I would wait a bit to see if it goes away.
  5. The is something called non-cyclical breast pain, which if I remember rightly is not caused by hormones. I had a strange pain/ discomfort in one breast. The doctor suggested take vitamin E and evening primrose oil, but she did not mentioned the dosage. Mine went within weeks of starting only one of these vitamins. (It might eventually gone by itself even without taking the vitamin.) Breast pain can also be caused by stress and anxiety.

    I'm Way Behind...

    Mary, I'm sorry to hear that you and your loved ones are having such a rough time. I will say a prayer too.
  7. Ok it works on the iPad and I can see how it should look. I can't get the same result on my pc. When I managed to get the blue empty quote box in a previous message I'd had used the quote icon from the group of icons. Looks like if I want to quote I need to use my iPad.
  8. Well I can't work it out, so I'm going to come back to it another day. I seem to have the same problem as Jenn54. I wonder if it is some personal setting that is not right.
  9. No sure if this will work.
  10. Ignore this post. I'm trying to work out how to copy a quote. So I having a play around until I get it right. (I didn't manage to quote!) I try one more time. For some reason I can't get it to work.
  11. No I was not getting an error message. I was getting nothing at all. I think I have resolved it.
  12. I think I might have found it. Is it enable HTML?
  13. I tried to put this question in the technical area of the board and it would not let me. I'm having difficulties pasting up some links. (Sometimes I can get to work!) I can do it when I highlight the link on a site and then paste it, but sometime this site does not allow me to use this feature. Can someone let me know how it is done.
