I saw a GP (not my own) last week because I had really acute pain in my right breast. I noticed it was swollen and bigger than usual but not red or inflamed. I asked if it was related to FMS - but this GP said it wasn't a 'real' illness. He said there wasn't a lump and they looked normal to him. HAH!!! what does he know what looks normal for me???? I think I know my own body best!!! But I decided not to further my discussion with him and made an appointment to see my own GP who has been on holiday - so the earliest I can see him is
Thursday. I have been thinking it may be chostochondritis, as the pain and sensitivity goes across my sternum and under my armpit. But I can't find anywhere if the swelling and pain in my breast would be related to that or something else. It has settled with brufen and wearing a bra is getting extremely uncomfortable, but having nothing is also really painful. Everytime I turn on to my right side in bed I get such severe shooting pain in my breast I can't lie that way at all. Any ideas or common threads would be really helpful to ensure I don't get fobbed off at the Dr's.
