I have what my ex used to call 'luxury bumpers'. Recently I decided that whatever the woman in Debenhams said, I didn't seem to be a 34F and went off to Bravissimo, where an amazingly young, and very curvy girlie decided I was 32GG.
So I bought some lovely new bras, which were really comfy and supportive, gave me a dramatic cleavage etc etc. But after a few weeks I started feeling bruised under my left armpit. I went back to the old bras for a bit and the pain went away. Tried again with the new bra and was in agony after a day - with the pain extending all the way through my breast almost to my nipple.
Doc had a feel and there is nothing obvious, other than me saying 'Ouch'. But fact that its starting on the other side, together with a recent mammogram is fairly re-assuring that its not cancer. He thinks it may be tail end menopause symptoms (I stopped six years ago, but had some breakthrough bleeding three years ago) and recommended evening primrose and red clover.
But it still hurts and is in fact getting worse again, despite the fact that I am wearing a soggy wire free bra that doesn't do much at all. The supplements probably haven't had a chance to work yet.
Any ideas? Where should I go? What should I ask?
