Default TMI girly health stuff

I figured I'd ask you girls... It's probably way TMI but oh well...

My boob is hurting really freaking bad today. It has all day and this morning I was almost in tears it hurt so bad. And I was nauseas all day, which I think had to do with the pain. It's not 'normal' pain either, it's on the side and only on the one boob. Now I've been sitting at work thinking I have a tumor or something and am freaking myself out. I didn't want to google 'breast' at work though so now I'm reading up at home and they say pain isn't a sign usually of a tumor, so that's good.

How long do I wait to see if the pain goes away before seeing a doctor? I can't think of a reason I would have hurt it recently although this afternoon I slammed it in the car door which I'm sure isn't going to make the pain go away quickly (it had already been hurting all day)

I tried taking pain relievers and it didn't help at all.

...how do you slam your boob in a car door? LOL

Ugh, sorry you have the pain If it's realy that bad, I'd probably head to the doctor tomorrow if I were you (though I likely would have gone today, I'm a wimp)

Is it in one spot? Like you could point at the exact spot? Or is it just like... the whole thing?

Do you drink a lot of pop?

I'd go check that out. I have no idea what it may be but that seems really random and not somewhere to suddenly have pain. There are lymph nodes there (more in the arm pit but I am not sure *where* you are hurting), perhaps you just have an infection draining into those?

Are there any red spots or areas? Do you have a fever? It almost sounds like mastitis. Its not common but apparently can happen when not nursing or pregnant.

Yeah it's just one spot, not near the armpit but on the side. I've had pain before but it's usually not just in one spot like this and not just on one side. I wonder if I could have pulled something or done something I don't remember...?

Oh and as far as slamming it in a car door, they're kind of... big. LOL!

I drink some pop but not much.

No, it's not red or bruised. And there's no lumps or anything I can feel. It's on the outer side and not the side I sleep on or anything like that.

ETA: It's not that time of the month either.

Sometimes when I drink pop my boobs hurt... I've also heard it happens to some people either right before/during/after their period.

Other than that I have no idea

Are you ovulating maybe? Mine hurt every time I ovulate too.

Someone I know had the issue just last week actually, and her doctor said it was due to stress/diet change and caffeine. Could it be the case for you?

I'd see if it gets better and see a doctor just in case if it still hurts in a couple days, personally.
