Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I have painful breast symptoms two weeks before my period. After my period starts, the symptoms last four more days. Finally, the breast pain lasts about 15-16 days after ovulation. I take Paracetamol to easen the pain every time, but it does nothing and is interfering with my daily activities. How can I ease the pain? Also, birth control is not an option. Kindly give your suggestions to get rid of my problem.

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I suggest you to follow the below-mentioned lifestyle modifications,

1. Cut down sugar and salt intake.

2. Reduce drinks like coffee, tea, etc.

3. Use a supportive bra.

4. Increase physical activity.

5. Eat more boiled vegetables and fruits.

6. Reduce saturated and trans fats, reduce red meat, drink low-fat milk, and avoid cookies and cakes.

I hope this has helped you. Kindly review after two weeks.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
