Breast pain before period?

I don't do caffeine, so why am I getting breast pain before my period these days? I really don't even eat that much chocolate. Any suggestions of what to do for the pain? Once I gave up caffeine that had stopped until this year.

  • Caffeine and breast pain??? Didn't know they had anything to do with each other. I thought breast tenderness/pain was a PMS symptom????

  • A doctor I had once told me to lay off the caffeine because they were hurting all the time. (I was a serious Pepsi fiend). It worked, The pain stopped but now, other than pms, I'm not sure what the culprit is

  • It's typical to have breast pain before your period...regardless if you have caffeine in your diet. I'm not big on soft drinks or anything & I've always had breast pains before my cycle comes.

  • I have cysts in my breast that swell just before my could try taking vitamin c, d, and e along with b complex to see if it helps...that's what I was told years ago by a breast specialist...

  • Oh yes, caffiene is bad and I love it...after I took my 4th son off the breast I went nuts with the coffee and I had pain in my breast and was told to stop the coffee because I have fybroids and caffiene will make them worse...Hormones can also make your breast very tender nd even swell before your period...Vitamin D and E can really make a difference with the fibroids...
