Hi Anon

Thanks for reaching out to us! 

Nipple pain like this can happen for several reasons. 

You may have some kind of inflammatory disorder that is causing this kind of pain. You also may have an infection in your nipple. 

You may also be experiencing this pain due to hormonal fluctuations that happen in our 40s and 50s. 

If this pain continues for more that another day, please visit your doctor. 

Will you keep us posted?
