Today I was driving and had a sudden pain in my nipple. It felt like a needle stabbing my nipple. Then I touched both nipples and they were very sore. Kinda like if you touch a bruise.

Anytime time you experience any pain in the breasts it's usually a hormone problem. If you feel
Something it's a different matter.

I get that all the time. I have fibroadenoma and since the surgeries and when the weather is poorly and damp I suffer from sharp pains in the nipples and also it's a hormone issue. It's not to much to worry about I've got it for years now.

I see all these comments so hopefully someone can help me. Last night I was awakened with a sharp stabbing like pain in my left nipple. It has continued throughout the day today off and on. Feels like someone is stick a pin into my left nipple. What could this be. I am 55 years old, never had children due to ovaries not developing due to scarlet fever back in the day. So I have had no milk whatsoever from my nipples/breasts. What could be the cause of this? No insurance so would like to get a free "thought/diagnosis". Thank you.

Hello Anonymous,

Please contact your physician's office about this. Pain that persists all day should not be ignored.

This happend to me as well. Except I felt the pain around my nipple and it hurt when I held it down. Im 16 and pregnant with my first baby. I dont know if this has to do with my breasts developing or the milk that ill be producing?

You sound identical to myself. This just started a week ago. It hurts so badly that I have to hold my breast until the pain stops. May I ask what you found out from the ultrsound. Im 48. Hyterectomy 8 yrs ago. I take hormonal replacement. But if I brush my breast againist anything, even the sheets, it will cause the pain to return.

Hi, Their could be few reasons. One main thing could be is their might be something there. Maybe you have a cyst because when a cyst rubs against you it can be painful. It might be something that should be taken out. See your doctor about this sooner. The other reason could be is it might be a hormonal issue. Try taking over counter Motrin (ibuprofen) which helps with the pain. If you feel something is in your breast then out of what I said here is it could be a cyst thats bothering you like this. See a doctor sooner because it might infected. Let me know how it goes, keep us posted.

Good Luck,
Melissa
