I was having coffee with a good friend of mine the other day and she said that she was going to have to try to cut back on her beloved caffeine because one of her breasts has been painful lately and very sensitive. She's had normal mammograms and she does a self-breast exam every month and said all is well, it's just that one breast is naturally a bit bigger than the other one and it tends to feel sore and sensitive.
She said she had read that caffeine can make it worse, so she was going to cut way back on it. And a doctor told her to try Evening Primrose Oil capsules.
Has anyone here ever heard of that? I've heard of the caffeine/sore breasts angle but not the Evening Primrose Oil. She also wants to cut back on the salt in her diet. She said it's all worth it for her to try these approaches because she is so tired of, as she put it, being aware of her one breast all of the time.
If you've tried this supplement, would you mind posting here to let us know? and if you have this condition yourself please post what has worked for you.
Thank you everyone! I want to show her what an awesome community EmpowHer is. Big hugs, Michelle
