Why do my boobs hurt?

My boobs have hurt for weeks.

They feel hot and heavy.  Sleeping is torture (I sleep on my stomach).

If you touch them, they are hot to the touch.  I sweat they are bigger than usual, they certainly feel heavier.  Both on my chest, and lifted in my hand.  They ache.  Like a deep inside soreness that never goes away.  Wearing a bra helps a bit.  But at the same time, having anything touch them hurts, pressure really hurts.

It almost feels like when I first gave birth and couldn't breastfeed (medication issue).  They were so sore and big until the milk went away, it was torture.

Except that I gave birth 10 yrs ago and there is no possible way I'm pregnant.  I thought it might be my period, but that came and went and is coming again soon.

I'm seeing the doctor tomorrow (not looking foward to her feeling up my tat-tas lol) but wth? Any other women had this happen? What could it be?  How can I make it stop?

I am thinking the exact same thought as I type this. I thought it was my period too, but same as you, it came and went and my boobs still hurt. Taking off the bra is torture. Are you well endowed? I am and the weight without a bra is awful! Post what the doc says, because I don't go for a few months yet:/

No especially, one coffee in the morning.

Hmm I'm not sure then. I know when I drink alot of caffeine my boobs hurt. Sometimes they hurt real bad before my period starts. Good luck

that's a long wait.  Are you seeing a specialist? I'm just going to my family doctor.   From what I've read, hormonal changes usually cause breast pain, but it radiates from teh armits, my pain radiates from the middle of the breast (nipples area).  

I am average I think, I wear a DD to a D (I'm losing weight, so now the size can vary on the brand and style).

Pregnant? But usually your skin being hot to the touch means some kind of infection. I'm not sure. At least you're going to the doctor and you can get it figured out.

Mine are hurting real bad too because I'm about to get my period.
I have the urge to get a pump and release all the milk from engorged breasts but I'm not lactating. It just feels like it.

You could have fibrocystic breast disease. Sounds worse than it is but can hurt like a bitch and no pain meds help. I have it and, weird as it sounds, cut out the caffeine. I mean, cut it out completely. When I was first diagnosed I cut the soda and the pain was gone in a few days.

Basically, it is lumps and pain. Not cancerous, but really f-in painful.

that's my guess.  Every time I look up the symptoms I come up with articles talking about cycles of hormones.  The symptoms fit s exactly to a pregnant women, or a women having her period. Except it's all month and I'm not pregnant.  Hormones gone caazy seems to fit
