Help! My Nipples HURT!

This maybe TMI, and I'm sorry... but my nipples have been WAY over the top sensitive. I normally do not have sensitive nipples at all, and they are usually flush with my areollas (sp?). But the last 3 weeks they have been rock hard, and hurt like crazy. I know I am not preggo, a 110% sure. And there is nothing different in my diet or exercise routine. So, WHY do they hurt? And what can I do to help with the pain, as I am not a pill popper for every little ache and pain. Please help! Any and all POSTIVE/ HELPFUL suggestions, ideas or thought are welcome.

  • cut em off haha jk ! Are you really sure that you can't be pregnant though? Are you close to your period?? I would take a hot bath, and put a hot wash cloth on your nipples to relieve the pain.. Hopefully that will help! I'm sorry I couldn't be much more of help to you, but that ones a hard question!!
